No. 92-50B. The special "USA" stamp which appears on this Postcard honors the United States of America and Old Glory, proud symbol of freedom and the American tradition. Available in denominations of 23c, this presorted first-class stamp depicts one of the most popular designs for United States postage stamps--the American flag.

Rules of etiquette regarding flag design and display vary from one nation to another, and penalties for desecration range from social disapproval to fines or incarceration. In 1942 Congress legalized a code of dignified use which governs the display and care of the U.S. flag
