The American flag is an iconic image that inspires many but has also become a complex and controversial symbol since Congress first adopted it on June 14, 1777.
In 350 images, sixty-four artists share their work and the inspiration behind their representations of the American flag and other patriotic symbols. A variety of art forms from watercolor to oils, mixed media to digital, crazy quilt to matchboxes, pay homage to a lost generation, remember 9/11, or simply celebrate American pride.
