Americans have always demonstrated their patriotism and love of country in the design and style of decorative and every day objects. The use of American themes, such as flags, eagles, shields, the liberty cap and pole, lady liberty and images of our national heroes collectively form a uniquely American style. These galleries of items in the Rare Flags collection are tied together by their uniquely patriotic and historical motifs. They highlight some of the many forms that one can encounter when seeking out patriotic and historical Americana.
