I really love Independence Day. I love what it means, I love how much people love it and celebrate it, the same way John Adams envisioned it 237 years ago when he wrote the sentence quoted above in a letter to his wife, Abigail, anticipating the separation of the thirteen colonies from Great Britain. I also realized, how compelling is the design of the American Flag (which is, of course, the most used object and symbol during the 4th of July festivities). Here is a quick look at my favorite flag-inspired design, art and fashion pieces. Happy 4th!
