About the stamp design:  Pictures a pencil and watercolor illustration of a white gambrel barn in spring.  Original artwork by illustrator Stephanie Bower.

First Day City:  There was no First Day of Issue Ceremony, but the First Day of Issue postmark was from Halifax, Pennsylvania, just one town in America that’s home to a barn with a flag painted on the side of it.

About the Flags on Barns set:  Includes four stamp designs picturing pencil and watercolor illustrations of barns with large American flags painted on the side of them.  The backgrounds represent different seasons.  Original artwork by illustrator Stephanie Bower.  They’re patriotic designs that represent the spirit of America.

History the stamp represents:  Many have seen flags painted on barns in the past, but how many have seen an entire barn painted in red, white, and blue?  Those traveling near the corner of Freeway 41, the road to Yosemite National Park, and Avenue 12 in the San Joaquin Valley, California, have seen such a barn.  The McCaffrey Flag Barn was painted a few days after the attacks on 9/11.  This barn gave everyone not only a symbol of support in the trying weeks and months that followed, but a source of pride for the local residents.

The McCaffreys, Robert and Karen, didn’t know then that the barn would take on a life of its own.  Since the painting, people have traveled from all over the world to visit the barn and take photos.  Even tourists from Italy came by the busload to see the barn.  It’s been in the news, in magazines, and mentioned by Oprah Winfrey.  When the flag barn was tagged with graffiti, it was promptly repainted in less than 12 hours.  After all, it’s not just tourists who pose in front of the Stars and Stripes, but high school classes, engaged couples, and volunteer fire departments.

Although the McCaffreys sold the property the new owners assured everyone the flag barn will never be torn down – it’s just too important.
