What is Flag Day and how should that day be celebrated?
Flag Day is another expression of nationalism, the religion of worshiping the state, mindlessly, for its authority, and it has no place in the United States of America, a country founded on thumbing its nose at authority. Patriotism is a lie; one's country can't be "better" than another country, and certainly not in a melting pot where everyone is an individual who's rights trump those of the state. The very opposite of Flag Day and a real holiday for Americans, is the Fourth of July, where we celebrate individualism and egalitarianism, what this country was founded upon and once stood for, though no one seems to realize what they're doing.
Ways to force people to donate money for Flag Day?
A) Put your own money in.
B) You have to promote the cause.
Be prepared to say
what is the purpose of the fundraising. (fight against hunger)
how the money will be used; (buying food for Haiti)
who will be in distributing it; (Red Cross)
what percentage of the cash is used for the fund raising expenses;
BTW: I suspect that you don't mean "force" but "encourage".
I need some Flag Day game ideas for preschoolers. Do you know of any simple games we could play with flags?
Ask the child his/her favorite color, accordingly select the country flag which has that particular color dominantly. in this way the child can remember the color and the related details easily.
one more option is tell the details in a song, kids catch up the music very fast.
try out, make funny sounds with the info's so the kids can remember.
When is the oldest origin of flag day for any country?
The national Día de la Bandera (Flag Day) celebration occurs on February 24. On this day in 1821, all the factions fighting in the War of Independence joined together to form the Army of the Three Guarantees in response to the Plan de Iguala, which was signed by Vicente Guerrero and Agustín de Iturbide, declaring Mexico officially an independent country. General Vicente Guerrero was the first military official who swore allegiance to the national flag. Another flag tradition is that before every Olympics in which Mexico is a participant, the President hands a flag over to the flag bearer, chosen by their peers, to carry with them to the host city.
This is the only other Flag Day I found.
