According to tradition, the colors of the U.S. flag had no official significance upon its creation. When the official seal of the United States of America was designed however, it was decreed that red was to signify hardiness and valor; white, purity and innocence; and blue would represent vigilance, perseverance and justice. What better ideals to celebrate this 4th of July?
In a letter to his wife the day before he signed the Declaration of Independence, future president John Adams predicted that Independence Day would be observed through the ages exactly as we do it today: with parades, fireworks and as much fun as possible. As you commemorate Independence Day with grand revelry and merriment as suggested by the great Mr. Adams, wear the bold and beautiful colors of red, white and blue with pride!
