The Divine First Flag
Flags symbolise the noble aspirations and glorious achievements of the human race ; they epitomize the romance of history; they incarnate the chivalry of the ages.
The origin of the first flag is divinity itself ! For when, at the beginning of recorded time, Jehovah made a covenant with man, promising that never again would He send the waters to cover the face of the earth and destroy all flesh, He unfurled the first flag — the multihued banner of the rainbow — which He set in the clouds as a symbol of security and an assurance to all future generations of His watchful care.
And since that day man has, in his finite way, employed his earthly banners as emblems of faith, of hope, and of high resolve.
