From the Bosque School in Albuquerque, New Mexico we have received this design which has been created by Sierra Kosel in 8th grade. Sierra used both pencil and watercolour to bring her design to life, and the original is 8.5″ x 12″.
“The Bosque School is proud to be able to participate in this momentous endeavour.” Alaura Nellos 8th grade Art teacher
Thank you so much to Sierra and her teacher Alaura for sending us this col0urful piece.
American Flag Meaning
The 13 stripes represent the 13 original colonies of the US: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina and Virginia. The 50 stars represent the individual states that make up the nation. Popular history states the red of the flag represents valor, white stands for liberty or purity and blue represents justice, loyalty and perseverance. These meanings are unofficial though.
Interesting American Flag Fact:
The American flag is often called “the stars and stripes” or “Old Glory.”
