This Wednesday, we celebrate Flag Day! And while many young people look at Old Glory and see a timeless icon of Americana, the current incarnation is only 57 years old! And prior to adding the 50th star (Hawaii held out as a state until 1960) we actually had 27 other variations throughout our country’s 241 year history. So timeless? Maybe not. But iconic? Absolutely!
So it’s high time we started our summer patriotic celebrations! Memorial Day is already behind us, Flag day is right around the corner and before you know it it’ll be the 4th of July! Get festooned with American flag lapel pins!… Wait, you don’t have enough flag pins to “festoon” yourself? (I admit I really like the word “festoon”) This is easily remedied. Because PinMart has nearly as many American flag lapel pins as there are stars and stripes!
From the traditional
To the alternative
To the complete summer set
And that’s just the tip of the ice burg.
No matter what you end up doing this summer, fun patriotic lapel pins can make a big impact. And not only on your lapel, but as part of your party, save the date invitations, or as party favors for your next B.B.Q. They’ll make for fun group photos the day of, and your guests can then rewear these pieces again and again. And if they’re good friends, they’ll think of you every time they pin it on!
Take advantage of the current trend of totally-wait for it-festooning yourself in pins, and pay tribute to our great country, and iconic, unique American identity. Be safe this summer, and get pinned.
