We pride ourselves being 100% Made in USA, so it’s important to remember what the American flag stands for. What does the American flag stand for? And what does it mean to us? To answer that question, we’ll first look at what each part of the flag was meant to represent when it was created.
What each element of the American flag stands for:
- 50 stars represent each State in the Union of the United States of America.
- 13 stripes represent the thirteen original colonies of America.
- Red stripes represent hardiness and valor.
- White stripes represent purity and innocence.
- Blue background of the stars represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.
What else do we notice about the American flag?
The American flag has been meticulously designed and in so doing, we can derive other meaning from it.
The blue section of the American flag represents the states
The stars are all aligned; this shows the states in the union working together in harmony because they surround themselves in the color blue, which represents vigilance, perseverance, and justice. We see this as a symbol within the American flag showing that those within the fifty states are vigilant and persevere because they want to bring about justice.
The stripes on the American flag represents the thirteen original colonies
The thirteen original colonies surround the newly created union of states. Those colonies are colored red and white showing their purity, innocence, hardiness and valor. This is our history. This is where we came from. It is through vigilance and perseverance, that we sustain and further our goals of obtaining a just society.
Combining the stars and stripes of the American flag
What does the American flag stand for? When the stars and stripes of the flag are combined, our past is joined with our future. The flag represents all of the work that went into creating our present day society. It shows that all of the people had to work together to make it happen. It represents the nature of the people within our society.
What does it mean to be Made in USA?
Knowing what the American flag stands for we can begin to understand what it means to be “Made in USA.” While it’s nowhere near the same as those who managed, fought, and/or died for our country to create a just society, we’ll try our best to create our own symbolism. All of the workers at our company come together to create a product that is tough and durable. One that will last. To create a quality product, we need quality materials. So we surround ourselves with quality materials, those things similar to purity and hardiness. We value all of those who are part of our company because they are important. No matter who they are, or where they came from. We strive to achieve the same thing; a product that will last long and serve others well.
Why did we want to answer this question?
These days, so many companies will do the minimum to slap a “made in USA” label on their product to simply get a marketing boost. Not so for us. We truly value what it means to be Made in USA, and we want you to know that.
