1981 6¢ Ring of Stars

Issue Date: April 24, 1981
City: Portland, ME
Printed By: Bureau of Engraving and Printing
Printing Method: Engraved
Perforations: 11
Color: Multicolored
Across the globe, national flags represent each country’s ideals. The flag that is most recognizable as a symbol of freedom and strong will is the American flag. 
 
“My red stripes proclaim the fearless courage and integrity of American men and boys and the self-sacrifice and devotion of American mothers and daughters. My white stripes stand for liberty and equality for all. My blue is the blue of heaven, loyalty, and faith.” This quote from Ruth Apperson Rous’ “I am the Flag” delivers the sense of pride that is equated with the American flag. It is the embodiment of liberty and of all the freedoms that Americans are granted – freedom of speech, religion, assembly, the press, and the sanctity of the home. 
 
These freedoms, plus liberty, justice, and humanity are the basis of why America was founded. The colors of the flag are not arbitrary; they stand for all that Americans stand for and are a celebrated reminder of the humble and challenging beginnings of our nation. The stars, representing a new constellation – the young, new nation of America – are an enduring symbol of America’s dedication to its people. Under this banner, everyone shall be treated equal and America will never fade.
