Navy Day October 27th

Since its founding in 1902 (with the support of President Theodore Roosevelt) the Navy League of the United States has provided a powerful voice for a stronger sea service to Congress and to the American People. The Navy League has grown to become the foremost citizens’ organization to serve, support, and stand with all the U.S. sea services; the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and U.S. flag Merchant Marine.

With oceans bordering its eastern, western, and southern coasts, the United States is indeed a maritime nation and requires strong sea services, which are critical elements of homeland security and peace.

Navy League has compiled an impressive record of accomplishments by members who are recognized for their integrity, patriotism, and community service. Since the Navy Leagues founding, it has grown to become a worldwide organization with more than 60,000 members in 250 councils. Council membership includes more than 250 corporate and community affiliate members as well.

Today, the Navy Leagues original mission is focused on two main initiatives; First, the Navy Leagues public education efforts are designed to inform the nation and its political leaders of the vital importance to the country of comprehensive and fully prepared sea services. Second, the Navy League, primarily through its councils, provides support for active duty sea services personnel and their families. 

In keeping with its educational objective, the Navy League also supports Americas young people through successful youth programs, including sponsorship of the U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps and the Navy League Foundation Scholarship Program. Navy Day in the United States is still largely recognized as October 27th.

Canada Flag

The flag of Canada was officially adopted on February 15, 1965. The Canadian Red Ensign, bearing the Union Jack and the shield of the royal arms of Canada, was lowered and then, on the stroke of noon, the new maple leaf flag was raised. The crowd sang the national anthem O Canada, followed by the royal anthem, God Save the Queen.

The following words, spoken on that momentous day by the Honorable Maurice Bourget, Speaker of the Senate, added further symbolic meaning to the flag: “The flag is the symbol of the nation’s unity, for it, beyond any doubt, represents all the citizens of Canada without distinction of race, language, belief or opinion.

The stylish red maple leaf has been the national symbol of Canada for over 150 years. Red and white are the official colors of Canada, proclaimed by King George V in 1921. Canadian Province and Territory Flags

The U.S. Navy Turns 240

On October 13, 2015 the U.S. Navy will turn 240.  On Friday, October 13, 1775, meeting in Philadelphia, the Continental Congress voted to fit out two sailing vessels, armed with ten carriage guns, as well as swivel guns, and manned by crews of eighty, and to send them out on a cruise of three months to intercept transports carrying munitions and stores to the British army in America. This was the original legislation out of which the Continental Navy grew and as such constitutes the birth certificate of the navy.

Fly your Navy flags proudly, today and everyday, to thank those who give their lives for our freedoms.  All Flag-Works Navy flags are made in the USA.  Order yours today: http://www.flag-works.com/Navy_flags.htm
