    Meanings of a folded U.S. flag

    The first fold of the American flag is a symbol of life.
    The second fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life.
    The third fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veteran departing our ranks, and who gave a portion of his or her life for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world.
    The fourth fold is a symbol of our weaker nature, as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace, as well as in times of war, for His divine guidance.
    The fifth fold is a tribute to our country, the United States of America. For in the words for Stephen Decatur, "Our country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right, but it is still our country, right or wrong."
    The sixth fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that we pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
    The seventh fold is a tribute to our armed forces, for it is through the armed forces that we protect our country and our flag against all enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.
    The eighth fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day, and to honor our mother, for whom it flies on Mother's Day.
    The ninth fold is a tribute to womanhood, for it has been through their faith, love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great have been molded.
    The 10th fold is a tribute to father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since he or she was first born.
    The 11th fold, in the eyes of Hebrew citizens, represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies, in their eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
    The 12th fold, in the eyes of a Christian citizen, represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in their eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost.

    When the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost, reminding us of our national motto, "In God We Trust."

    After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it has the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington and the sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones and were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the U.S. Armed Forces, preserving for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today.

    FAQs
    When are flags flown on the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor National Memorial?

    Flags are flown ceremonially three times a year: December 7 (anniversary of attack on Pearl Harbor), Memorial Day and Independence Day. You can also have your flag flown on a specific date as long as you place your order 7 days in advance. The only days we don't fly flags are Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year's Day as Pearl Harbor National Memorial is closed.

    Can I personalize my Pearl Harbor Certificate of Flag Presentation?

    Yes. When placing your order, please input the name or names you'd like on your certificate. We recommend one line with 45 letters max. We also recommend writing "John Smith" instead of "JOHN SMITH".

    Polymax or Nylon?

    The polymax flag is a thicker, heavier material that is similar to cotton. Most people cannot tell the difference. The nylon flag is thin and soft to the touch and does much better for flags being flown outside. Nylon flags are also generally easier to fold.

    We live flying these flags!

    These are very special flags that are extremely well-made in the U.S. out of high quality components. It feels so right to be flying a flag that has been flown in the Pearl Harbor flag display.

    Pearl Harbor Ornament !

    Beautiful!

    Exceptional!

    The Sailor's Salute 80th Remembrance Hat is one of the best representations Honoring the United States Navy Men Who Bravely Served
    during the Japanese Attack on Pearl Harbor 7 December 1941. 'Lest we Forget' those who gave their lives, and those who were forever
    maimed by what occurred that horrific Sunday morning. We must also SALUTE not only these men, but those, whom like my father, who spent 48-plus
    hours pulling the dead, dying and burning bodies out of the flaming waters of Pearl Harbor. These men have been forever affected by the tapping they heard
    coming from the hulls of the destroyed and damaged ships. They did not have the heavy equipment to break through the Hulls to rescue them. It wasn't
    until until Christmas Day night when they finally broke through the last ship where the tapping had been heard only to find the last man had died Christmas Eve.
    Markings, one per day since the Day of the Attack had been scratched in the chamber walls where the men were found.

    This is why this HAT, with this particular emblem, is important in the Memory of the Men of the United States Navy who valiantly gave their all in Defense of the United States and to World Freedom. Those who survived, they did not acquiesce, they fought back with intense resolve. The Japanese officially signed the Instrument of Surrender aboard the U.S.S. Missouri 2 December 1945 before representatives of 9 allied Nations.

    This Hat should forever be the Official one worn every December by all of the United States Naval Forces. Its representation is powerful!

    It's quality is laudatory, well thought out and constructed. The individual who created its Emblem deserves to be rewarded for its design.

    Too cute not to buy!

    On the Small Side

    The color and printing on this shirt are fantastic, as is the fabric. The fit, however, is not. My wife normally wears an XL/XXL, but went up to a XXXL as she wanted to be able to use it as a work out shirt and loves these to be loose and long. This one fits more like a small XXL, and is really short. So much so that she is now going to order a mens in hopes of a better fit.

    Home of the Free Because of the Brave

    My dad served in the United States Navy during WWII and I love Hawaii so it is only fitting that I share these two loves by getting this flag that was flown over Pearl Harbor for the 80th anniversary commemoration of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I am a huge Elvis fan and know that he held a concert which raised $68,000 in early 1960s to get the ball rolling for this memorial to be built. He too was a great patriot.

    Amazing artwork

    I purchased the print entitled Tree of Life for a friend who has a great interest I. World war 2 history. When I gave him this beautiful work oh art it brought this tough on the outside man to tears. The price is unbelievable for this quality of work.

    Fantastic

    This makes anyone proud to be an AMERICAN!

    Completely satisfied.

    USS Nevada The ship that attempted to get out of the harbor on Dec 7 1941.

    I love the hat Got one for me and my DAR friend. We both attended the 75 th and 80th Anniversary Memorial of Pearl harbor. With the Honolulu Chapter of the DAR a wreath is placed in memory of our veterans of the Nevada at Hospital Point. Sadly it gets lost in recognition of the Arizona and other ships that day in the harbor and only by belonging to the DAR do we get access to the base to the site to honor our Sailors. I have family that have served in all conflicts since the Revolutionary War. I am very thankful to all our Veterans who provide us with our freedoms still today. Sharon Stingley

    Proud too own

    I first visited Pearl Harbor in 2005 and bought a flag. In the past 20 years I’ve been fortunate enough to buy many more . It’s an honor to support the Pacific Parks and an honor present an flag that has been flown over the Arizona. We are Arizona residents so it means a lot to us
