Summary "Vexillologists are not the only people who appreciate the flag--American flags are favored collectors' items for both history buffs and folk art aficionados. This book will appeal to all those markets. The abundance of art makes this an excellent gift book--it is a museum-quality book. The theory presented--that the symbols chosen for the flag were based on, among other things, ancient mythology, Christianity, and astronomy--is revolutionary. No one has ever woven all these elements together into one argument, which is so compelling that it seems perfectly obvious once it is unveiled"-- Provided by publisher.
