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.
Beautiful finish on quality materials. My install is not typical. I previously made my own pole out of 1.5" steel pipe with welded brackets to bolt to the hand rail and joists on the corner of my deck. It served it's purpose but never looked nearly as nice as it does now. I simply made nylon bushings to fit tightly between the steel pipe and the 3" aluminum pole and slipped it over. So far the highest wind we've had was 47mph and this configuration didn't flex at all with the flag at top mast. The flag is thicker material than most, and again, top quality material and craftsmanship. The best part for me is that this is 100% made in the USA. The only piece of the kit I didn't use was the nylon flag clips. You can upgrade to snaps that won't clang against the pole in the wind. Customer service was quick to respond and great to talk with. I will unquestionably buy another one for my next home!
Hard to find someone to do the job properly ,but after two weeks we finally got it in.
It is awesome and my neighbors are jealous. A couple of them have the telescopic flags so I enjoy telling them that mine is bigger than yours!
