How to use flag in a sentence?

  1. Ralph Waldo Emerson:

    By the rude bridge that arched the flood,Their flag to April's breeze unfurled,Here once the embattled farmers stood,And fired the shot heard round the world.

  2. Hal Buell:

    It's exquisite, you have this strong, diagonal line made by the flag staff. You have the flag snapping in the breeze. You have the pyramid-like shape of the Marines pushing the flag up. The men obviously are separate, but they appear as one. The blank background enhances the action by providing no distractions. Also, the photo is gifted with a softly filtered light. A very thin haze of clouds filters the light so that the shadows aren't harsh, but there is detail in all the shadows on the uniforms and the flag.

  3. Eusebius McKaiser:

    The old South African flag symbolizes brute anti-black racism, and its longer colonial history from which it flows, to that extent, the antiquated and divisive symbolism of the Confederate flag in the U.S. finds ideological affinity with the old South African flag. Both flags show off past injustice and neither flag represents the idealism of breaking from divisive pasts in search of new, inclusive realities.

  4. Ronald Reagan:

    Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future.

  5. Lester Bowles Pearson:

    This is the flag of the future, but it does not dishonor the past. (On his country's new Maple Leaf flag)
