On a production floor in an industrial area in Miami, workers were busy on the eve of Independence Day manufacturing American Flags.
While many people fly their American flags with pride, the quiet Flag Day holiday often passes with little recognition. But those who appreciate its symbolism strive to share their devotion to the national icon’s deeper meanings.
