The American flaghas been a symbol of pride for our country for as long as history can tell. You’ll find it waving in all its glory, representing the faith that we put in it to hold us together. It represents a promise and resolve to serve the country we call home and strive to make it better every single day; to remind us that we belong to a nation that is invested in a better tomorrow.
The American flag holds a special place in the heart of every American. It may mean something different to each person, but the message of unity, peace and prosperity is universal, and this is especially highlighted when we see the presence of the American flag in our movies.
Here are three of the most awesome movie scenes that featurethe Old Glory.
“No retreat!” That’s what he said
Symbolism is powerful.It can move the weakest of the hearts and inspire those who have given up hope. The Revolutionary War was probably far worse than tits representation shown in The Patriot but Mel Gibson sure outdid himself in creating a story powerful enough to make the dullest of people raise from their seats, hearts melting, to give the movie a standing ovation.
Even though the movie does show a couple of inaccuracies here and there, the films still is one of the most emotionally powerful ones that have used the flag to represented their strength, love and devotion to their land.
Another iconic movie that represents the American integrity, grit, and a vehement refusal to accept defeat, with Old Glory, is Rocky.
This movie is famous for the greatest grudge match from all grudge matches. What makes the match scene so powerful is the fact that Rocky wasn’t just in the fight to win the match. He was fighting a match that hit right on the honor string, by pitting the USA against Russia.
After one of the most popular battles in the world of American cinema was won, the victor was draped in the American flag; representingstrength and a fightingspirit, bringing out the inner patriot in every American.
Captain America: The First Avenger
What better way to represent love and devotion to our country than a weakling-turned-butt-kicking-badass superhero. Steve, the guy Captain America is when he’s not busy saving the world, has been a shining example of exactly what an American superhero is supposed to be like for as long asthe Captain America comicshave existed.
The American flag means everything to the citizens of America. It represents faith, love, prosperity, and a resolve to strive every day to make America better. It is a symbol of hope and pride; a reminder that we are one nation and will stand together forever.
