A couple of months ago, the United States declared Independence Day, with the slogan “America Is Independence Day.”
But now it seems that there may be an American flag that could be more than just a patriotic display.
According to a recent report in The Wall Street Journal, the U.S. Air Force has been exploring the idea of creating a flag that features the words “American is Freedom,” an expression of pride for the country’s independence.
The Air Force is considering a proposal to change the name of the flag to “The American Flag,” which would include a new blue and white version of the original flag, and the words, “For freedom and justice, for all,” a reference to the U, S and O, the four words used to denote the four branches of the American government.
“The blue and the white of the current flag, as well as the word ‘America’ are a reference [to the U., S., and O],” a spokesperson for the Air Force told The Journal.
The new flag would be a “signature for the future of the Airforce,” the spokesperson added.
The proposed redesign is one of several proposals the Air Forces is considering.
The Department of Defense is also considering a redesign of the U-2 spy plane that was retired in 2016, and several other proposed changes to the nation’s armed forces.
But as The Wall St. Journal noted, a proposal that could take years to make would be much more than a mere patriotic celebration.
“A proposal to redesign the U2 was met with widespread skepticism and skepticism from many in the defense community, even after a committee approved the proposal in December,” the newspaper noted.
“There is a strong chance that, in the future, the redesign will be considered a symbol of America’s political dysfunction and failure to lead the world.”
The current flag was created in the 1920s to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Midway, when Japanese bombers and their American pilots took out the entire U. S. Army, Navy and Marine Corps.
The original U-boat emblem, which has a white boat, is a symbol that has become an iconic symbol of the Cold War era.
A new flag is not the only possibility.
Earlier this year, a bill in the U (or U-23) Congress that would have changed the name to the United Daughters of the Republic of America was defeated by a bipartisan group of lawmakers.
