“Among the most popular icons of American culture, the flags and its colors have appeared on an astounding array of items. Streamers of red, white and blue–add images of the flag itself-are used as backdrops and centerpieces for nearly all political advertising. Stars and stripes show up on school tables, corporate letterheads, labels, annual report cover, fabrics, magazines and greeting cards. And we are not all surprised to find flags on key chains, salt and peppers shakers, wrapping paper and folding chairs, as well as on neckties, towels jewelry and penny candies,” Old Glory by United States Postal Service.
