Inventing the Flag
Henry W. Moeller
By Henry W. Moeller
About the BookWith gorgeous four-color reproductions of an amazing array of art from diverse cultures and eras, this book delves into the symbolism of the flag and investigates why the founding fathers chose the images they did to represent the new nation and the hidden meaning behind the symbols. Looking at the flag from an art-historical background, Inventing the Flag is radically different from the usual patriotic-tract, antiquarian-records and Masonic-mystery approaches with which this topic is usually treated.
Henry W. Moeller is a flag scholar with a passionate interest in the origin and symbolism of American thirteen-star flags.
"The best book on the American flag's origins...No one knows the ins and outs of the origins of the flag of the United States as well and as thoroughly as Henry Moeller does. This book is, by far, the most complete and accurate resource on how the Stars and Stripes came to be. Highly recommended."--Marc Leepson, author of Flag: An American Biography
