STARS & STRIPES: VINTAGE PHOTOS OF FLAGS

In honor of this season which finds us being reminded of our freedom and what this country means to us all, we bring you images of flags that photo collectors have submitted.  Even when the flag is photographed in black and white, it has a power to evoke memories of fireworks, pledges of allegiance in schools, camp grounds, and sometimes death.  For many people, it is a potent symbol of the might of our country and pride for what we stand for as a nation.  It can be a polarizing image and an image which unites us as Americans. It represents many things to many people.  We threw in one Confederate flag to keep you on your toes~   Happy Fourth!

  3. Someone recently asked me why I bought a particular shot. I pointed to the flag, In another I pointed to the Coca Cola sign. And then there were the ones with the Kodak signs. They're interesting categories worth collecting.
