We were out on a job the other day and when we were finishing up, our client asked us if we could help with one more thing. You see, atop a very tall pole was a tangled flag, one not reachable with a simple ladder. We were more than happy to reposition our bucket truck, extend the boom and have our team member fix “Old Glory.”
With so much chatter hitting social media right now regarding the disrespect of our country and the flag, the symbol that reflects the freedom of the citizens of this nation, it was an honor to help our client get the red, white and blue freely flying again.
One piece of history behind the creation of the flag is that it was created to represent unity, something that there is very little of in this nation today. Although the American flag set our nation apart from Britain, it definitely was meant to be a sign of unity within a nation set apart.
Below is a great link that has some interesting history about how the American flag came to be such an important symbol for the United States.
