First Day of Issue: November 30, 1987 First Issue Location: Washington, D.C. The American flag...symbol of freedom and democracy. Its bright colors, its bold design, its strong message of pride stir the heart of every American citizen. The flag began as a simple sign of solidarity during the Revolutionary War. Later, the ensign became a symbol of patriotism for the new United States. As the young nation sought to become a recognizable and distinctive entity, the flag went through some changes, but alternating red and white stripes always seemed evident. After the Revolution, a field of blue became popular. Once the U.S. Constitution was signed and ratified, the official flag honored each of the thirteen new states with a star of its own, these arranged in a linear pattern on the blue, in the upper left corner of the flag. The stripes also came to be numbered thirteen. Today, the American flag flies proudly...testimony to the glory of a nation. The stamp featured on this Maximum Card was issued in sheet form on May 9, 1987, and was reissued in booklet form on November 30, 1987
