Hurry! Only 10 Left in Stock!
Most Americans know the basic story behind July Fourth, but bring up June 19 and puzzled looks and questions may arise.
Celebrate the history of emancipation on Juneteenth with this Juneteenth Flag (3” x 5”). The flag has a field of blue on top and red on the bottom with a white star that is surrounded by a white star burst in the center. The date of June 19, 1865 (the date that the new of Emancipation reached Texas) is emblazoned vertically on the right end of the flag.
Juneteenth, a blending of the words “June and “Nineteenth,” is also known as Emancipation Day, Freedom Day and Independence Day for black Americans.
This century-and-a-half-long tradition hasn’t received the same level of attention as the more commonly known Independence Day, though the importance of Juneteenth reaches far beyond its place on the calendar.
“Juneteenth is not just a date. Juneteenth is a spirit. Juneteenth is a mentality,” said Steve Williams, president of the National Juneteenth Observance Foundation.
This flag is a perfect wall hanging, or for outside display on a porch. It is durable, but it is not intended for long term use in wind or on a flag pole.
