America’s Colors: Red, White and Blue

Red, white and blue are the color standards for a patriotic 4th of July celebration. Here's why.

Old Glory Red represents passion, gumption, determination, valor and bravery, and of course, the blood of revolution.

White is about purity, hope and optimism.

Old Glory Blue is the color of logic, perseverance, justice and fairness for all.

These are the hues chosen by the Congress of the Confederation for the Great Seal of the United States. The same colors were used for the Stars and Stripes—the American flag. The patriotic combination symbolizes unity for American citizens.

More than twenty other countries have the same color combination for their national flags.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful Independence Day.
