DID YOU KNOW...
No federal law, resolution or executive order exists providing an official reason for the flag’s colors — or their meaning. The closest thing to an explanation are the words of Charles Thomson, the secretary of the Continental Congress, who was instrumental in the design of the Great Seal of the United States. Thomson’s report to Congress on June 20, 1782, the day the seal was approved, contained a description of the colors, the same as those in the flag: “White signifies purity and innocence. Red hardiness and valor and Blue . . . signifies vigilance, perseverance and justice.”(source)
Our Fourth of July Stars & Stripes Jars were made using recycled mason jars we had already on hand.
They were once upon a time red with a chalkboard front on them.
We used flags we found at Target in the Dollar section. 3 flags in a package.
Star wire garland and hot glue.
We removed the stick from the flags and glued the flags to the fronts of the mason jars.
Next we loosely wrapped some wire star garland around the tops of the jars.
And last, we proudly displayed our jars!!!
