The Flag Day is meant for the promotion of national patriotism through allegiance to your Flag, the Stars and Stripes. So, be you at home, or away from home, take a break for reciting a pledgeof allegiance to the national Flag as well as your republic.

The pledge :

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Well, make sure to stand upright, remove headdress, if any, and place the right hand over the heart while reciting the pledge.

Now, a few words about the origin of the pledge:
The pledge was first brought out in the juvenile periodical The Youth's Companion on Sept. 8, 1892,in the following form:

"I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands;
one nation indivisible, with liberty and Justice for all."


According to a committee of the U.S. Flag Association, the pledge was written by Francis Bellamy, an assistant editor of the periodical.

The words "the flag of the United States of America" were substituted for "my Flag" in 1924,and the pledge was officially recognized by the U.S. government in 1942.

In 1954, at Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower's urging, the Congress legislated that "under God" be added, making the pledge finally read:

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
