Happy Flag Day!
Spectrum Industries is a proud American manufacturer of educational furniture. A red, white, and blue sticker is attached to everything we ship. As such, we especially honor the American Flag on this date.
From Betsy Ross being commissioned to make one of the first flags to Francis Scott Key immortalizing our flag in literature. From Old Glory being posted at Iwo Jima to the flag draped over the Pentagon on 9/11, the stars and stripes resemble freedom and liberty, and the united effort of individuals to overcome all odds.
It took such individuals as George Morris and Bernard J. Cigrand to raise awareness for the importance of flag observation, and such organizations as the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks and the American Flag Day Association to influence the country to officially observe the American Flag.
We at Spectrum continue this observance with every product we make and deliver!
