A Banner Day
Yesterday there were scores of Flag Day related articles and stories--too many and too generic to bother bloggin them. But this one from Bangor, Maine stands out. Of course, Dave Martucci is my friend, and is a past president of the North American Vexillological Association.
One of Dave's comments stands out for me. He says that flags are "the shorthand of history." I have found that to be true. My love for flags and my love of history go hand-in-hand. I have certainly found flags to be a great aid to teaching history (as a guest, not as a profession) in Tennessee, as has Dave in Maine.
