A national flag is the most sacred thing a nation can possess. (Thomas Francis Meagher, 19th century Irish nationalist)
A flag is a symbol that reflects a country’s origins and history, and it often represents all a country stands for. Unfortunately, not everyone supports his nation and its flag; some will even burn it. That may help us understand that the flag is not really a country’s most sacred thing. What’s most important is honoring and keeping the principles it stands for.
The godless nations will vanish from the land (Psalm 10:16). Godliness makes a nation great. (Proverbs 14:34)
