Today Is Flag Day

Flag of honor, flag of daring,
Flag of legions onward faring...

Old Glory, The Flag of Freedom!
Long May She Wave!

Flag our hearts and hands are bearing,
 On to victory.
From the dyes of battle gory,
Foam and waves of ocean's glory,
And the stars that tell thy story,
 Free men fashioned thee.
All for thee and thou forever,
Flag of victory!

By the standards that have shown thee,
By the battles that have known thee,
By the heroes that have flown thee,
Guide us in the fight!

Bless the soldier in his sleeping,
Hush the mother in her weeping,
Hold the helpless in thy keeping,
Warder of the right.
All for thee and thou forever,
Flag of victory!

"Our Flag"
Ralph L. Baldwin

Three Flags
Jasper Johns

Hurrah for the flag of the free!
May it wave as our standard forever,
The gem of the land and the sea,
The banner of the right.
Let despots remember the day
When our fathers with mighty endeavor
Proclaimed as they marched to the fray
That by their might and by their right
It waves forever!

"The Stars and Stripes Forever"
John Phillip Sousa

The Old Continentals 
NC Wyeth

You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're an emblem of 
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev'ry heart beats true
'neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there's never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

"You're A Grand Old Flag"
George M. Cohan

Salute The Flag
Norman Rockwell
