symbols are important? Guided Questions Almost every country around the world has patriotism, which is Love of country and its values. But what are values? Values are What is important to a group or people, or in

this case, the people of a country (that is, the culture). Think about your own family. Your family has values, too. Whats important in your family? Education? Spending time together? Working hard? Attending church? Etc We all have something in common. We are all AMERICANS!

So what are some American values? Well, our values are what we think is important and special about our country. We can look at our symbols to see what our values are as a country and what we think is special about America. Lets take a look at some of our national symbols.

The American Flag! How is the flag a symbol? Whats on the flag? Is it a random design or is it intentional? Lets look very close to see. Stars: There are 50 stars on our flag. What do the stars stand for? The fifty states in the United States.

Whats on the flag? Is it a random design or is it intentional? Lets look very close to see. Blue square: The blue square stands for the union. There are 50 states IN the union. Whats on the flag? Is it a random design or is it intentional? Lets look very close to see. Stripes: There are 13 stripes on the flag. What do you think they stand for? 13 original colonies

What other national symbols are there? Statue of Liberty: The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France to the US on the 100th anniversary of our Declaration of Independence (or declaring our LIBERTY & FREEDOM). In her right hand she holds

high a torch, lighting the way to freedom. Under her feet is a broken chain, showing the end of oppression, or control. She stands in New York Harbor, welcoming all who come from across the ocean and world. The Bald Eagle: The bald eagle was

chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America for its majestic beauty, great strength, long life, and because it's native to North America. The Great Seal:

The Great Seal is used on official U.S. documents. Like the flag, its design reflects our VALUES! Lets take a closer look! The Great Seal:

First, there is the eagle, our national bird. In one claw there is an olive branch with 13 leaves with 13 olives to represent peace. In the other claw there are 13 arrows to represent war. The two together stand for the idea that the US has a strong desire for peace but will always be ready for war.

The head is turned toward the olive branch, showing that we prefer peace. On the Eagles chest is a shield, that looks like the American Flag. In the eagles beak there is a scroll that reads E Pluribus Unum. This means, Out of Many, One. In other words, even though we are 50 different states, we are united as one country. Above the eagles head, there are 13 stars in a glory of blue for the 13 colonies. (A glory is an optical phenomenon that resembles an iconic saint's halo) Now that we now a little something about national symbols, what about

state symbols? State Symbols Similar to national symbols, state symbols Represent the cultural heritage and natural treasures of each state. Each state and region is also recognized by well-known icons and emblems such as state flags and state seals.

What are State Symbols? We are going to take a look at Arizonas flag and seal and where they came about. How many of you have seen our state flag before? Our state seal?

Flag and Seal In 1911 a rifle team from the Arizona Territory was scheduled for a competition match in Ohio and needed a flag to represent their team. Charles Harris (the Adjutant General of the territory) quickly designed what was to become the Arizona state flag

Why did we need a flag? The state flag of Arizona "represents the copper star of Arizona rising from a blue field in the face of a setting sun" The official state flag of Arizona was officially adopted on February 17,

1917. It was designed by Colonel Charles W. Harris (general and chief administrative officer of Arizona) It was first sewn by Nan D. Hayden. Our State Flag

FUN FACT: Arizona was the 48th state in the USA; it was admitted in 1912 (it had been part of Mexico before the Mexican War). o The 13 yellow and red rays represent both the Sun's rays and the original 13 colonies of the United States of America.

o The colors red and yellow are used because they were the colors of the flag of the Spanish conquistadors led by Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, who entered Arizona in o The copper-colored star in the middle represents copper mining, since Arizona

produces more copper than any other state in the USA. State seals can be compared to coats of arms for states. They are official emblems to put on documents. Each state has their own. Lets see what ours looks like! Why Do We Need a

State Seal? The official seal of Arizona displays the state's main enterprises and attractions. Arizona's state seal features a background mountain range with the sun rising behind the peaks A storage reservoir (lake) A dam

Irrigated fields Orchards Grazing cattle A quartz mill with a miner holding a pick and shovel. Our State Seal Above the drawing is the Arizona state motto, Ditat

Deus, (Latin for "God Enriches"). The words Great Seal of the State of Arizona and the year of admission to the United States (1912) is written around the seal. Our State Seal

Most of the canyon is within the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona (one of the first national parks in the United States). The Grand Canyon is unmatched throughout the world for the views it offers to visitors on the rim. The Grand Canyon attracts about five million visitors per year. The Grand Canyon was formed by the uplifting of the Colorado Plateau

and erosion caused by the Colorado River over a period of 6 million years. It is 277 miles long, ranges in width from 4 to 18 miles, and attains a depth of more than a mile. Nearly two billion years of the Earth's history can be observed in the layers of exposed rock. All of Our State Symbols
