|Many different people live in the United States.
Together we make one country.
We are proud of our flag.
We have a song for it called The Star-Spangled Banner.
We also say our Pledge of Allegiance. It is a promise to be a good citizen.
Our flag is a symbol for our country.
A symbol stands for something else.
Our flag is red, white, and blue and has fifty stars.
Each star stands for one of the 50 states.
The bald eagle is a symbol that stands for our country.
The liberty bell is another symbol. It rang long ago when the United States became a country. The Liberty Bell is in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The Statue of Liberty has welcomed new people to our country for a long time. The statue is in New York harbor.
Uncle Sam is another symbol for our country. He wears red, white, and blue.
