The First time I carried a flag in a Parade, there was a Civil War Veteran in the parade. There were no parades when we returned from Korea, we came into San Francisco at 3:00am. The only ones to greet us, was a Salvation Army Band. Began voting at 21, absentee ballot in Korea. The last flag I carried was when I was 73, in Anaheim, CA. We fly a flag daily, but on Holidays, we fly the flag my nephew gave to me. If flew over the Arizona in Pearl Harbor, when he ReEnlisted there for his third tour of duty in the Army. He later fought in Bosnia, and Iraq, after 17 years was medically discharged due to injuries in Iraq jumping out of a Helicopter... Members of our family have served in every generation since Levi Osborne and his 11 sons served in the Revolution. Ive lived in many countries, _not_one_ was even close to being as good as this one, with all the problems we have. The flag represents our family, including the third member to be a receive the Medal of Honor. Jason Dunham a cousin, killed in Iraq while saving the lives of his men.

Thank you Sharon!

Pueblo, CO - United States

While I am not a huge fan of any flags (unlike you), I still find this image to be powerful and beautiful art, with an evocative message. You are not advocating unthinking patriotism, which is primarily the only thing I object to, because nationality and religion are certainly huge motivators of wars in the world throughout time, into the present day. The kind of shadow work you did here is beautifully done and I whole-heartedly agree "It is the ideas, the hope the dreams the flag brings to many good people...." Well done! v/f

Thank you Lenore

Description

Vintage 1970, film photography, chemical darkroom. The stories the flag in the background could tell. Eventually it was replaced by the one in the foreground.


I like flags and I like the history behind them. Well designed flags cause all sorts of emotions. Over time flags come to symbolize many things. They become fashionable, they become unfashionable. Still I am captivated by them, especially the American Flag, always have and always will be. It is the ideas, the hope the dreams the flag brings to many good people, that makes each one interesting.

Photography by Bob Orsillo The national flag of the United States of America (the �American flag�) consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the �union�) bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The fifty stars on the flag represent the 50 states and the 13 stripes represent the original thirteen colonies that rebelled against the British monarchy and became the first states in the Union. Nicknames for the flag include the �Stars and Stripes�, �Old Glory,� and �The Star-Spangled Banner� (also the name of the national anthem). The flag has been changed 26 times since the new, 13-state union adopted it. The 48-star version went unchanged for 47 years, until the 49-star version became official on July 4, 1959 (the first July 4 following Alaska�s admission to the union on January 3, 1959). The 47-years of the 48-star version had been the longest time the flag went unmodified until July 5, 2007, when the 50-star version of the Flag of the United States broke the record.
