June 14 is National Flag Day!
Flags can be seen waving on front lawns, in hand during parades, and waving high above federal buildings. This gave us an idea!
We thought of creating a Children’s Spotlight, a family-friendly activity for children and families to create flags for Turner Syndrome (TS) awareness. The flag can be about the child, a call for awareness, or anything they wish to convey. Let the children speak through their artwork and the symbols they convey.
This Children’s Spotlight for TS awareness coincides with our nation’s Flag Day, the national day commemorating the adoption of the U.S. flag of the United States. Flags are symbolic and give meaning to nations, states and movements. The choice of colors and symbols have meaning. For example, on the U.S. flag the color red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence while blue signifies perseverance, vigilance and justice. The American flag in general is a symbol of national unity as well as pride for the country.
