Old Glory's Story
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     The American flag has different shapes and colors on it. Do you know what they mean?
 
2     When the colonies first began, the British flag was used. When people talked about breaking off from Great Britain, they wanted a new flag. One was the "Rattlesnake" flag. It had a yellow background. Across the middle was a rattlesnake. Underneath it was the words "Don't tread on me." It was used by the Continental Marines.
 
3     Another naval flag had a white background. In the middle of that was a green pine tree. It was called the "Liberty Tree" flag.
