RESOLUTION
Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that individuals
throughout the United States should observe Independence Day, July 4, 1989,
as `Take Pride in the Flag Day'.
Whereas the flag of the United States (the Stars and Stripes) came into
being amid the strife of battle and became the standard by which a free
people struggled to establish a great Nation;
Whereas the flag of the United States has carried the message of freedom to
many parts of the world in battles for freedom during the past 2 centuries;
Whereas individuals in the United States, proud of the symbol of liberty
and a free Nation, pledge allegiance to the flag at most public events;
Whereas the Federal Government has established and codified existing rules
and customs pertaining to the display and use of the flag of the United States;
Whereas in recent days many individuals in the United States, in response
to a recent decision of the United States Supreme Court affecting the flag,
have demanded appropriate recognition and respect for the flag; and
Whereas 1989 is the 213th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of
Independence and the 201st anniversary of the ratification of the Constitution
of the United States, which symbolize the liberties and freedoms of the
Nation: Now, therefore, be it
  Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that
  individuals throughout the United States should observe Independence
  Day, July 4, 1989, as `Take Pride in the Flag Day' and should engage in
  appropriate programs and activities--
  (1) to celebrate the 213th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration
  of Independence and the 201st anniversary of the ratification of the
  Constitution of the United States;
  (2) to recognize the flag of the United States as a symbol of freedom
  throughout the world; and
  (3) to display the flag in celebration and recognition of the liberty and
  freedom individuals in the United States have enjoyed for generations.
