Americanism

Programs


The NFRW Americanism Committee welcomes you. As Republican activists, Federation members and friends have an opportunity to inspire others to become passionate, patriotic Americans and to instill a renewed spirit of patriotism in the souls of others.

Our primary goal is to foster respect for the Flag of the United States of America. With participation by clubs and Federation members, we can reach this goal.

It is important to be consistent in setting an example for others, especially in the area of flag protocol. For that reason, the NFRW Americanism Committee is dedicated to following the guidelines set forth in "Our Flag," a publication printed by the U.S. Government Printing Office in Washington, D.C. A direct link to the electronic version is provided below.

To foster an allegiance to the United States and its customs and institutions, the NFRW Americanism Committee strives to be a resource for projects and research for our Federation members. We are proud to provide you with helpful guides, information, and resource links to assist you in preparing Americanism programs for your club and your community. It is Republican women who are most passionate about our patriotism, love of country and flag.

Interesting Facts

  Despite some confusion and disagreement on the matter, stars on the U.S. Flag should never be inverted. On August 21, 1959, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Executive Order No. 10834 which details the proper design of the U.S. Flag. Part I, Section 2, of the Executive Order states, "The positions of the stars in the union of the flag and in the union jack shall be as indicated on the attachment to this order, which is hereby made a part of this order." The attachment clearly shows the stars standing on two points. View the Executive Order and the accompanying attachment.
