• When I think of the flag.... I see alternate strips of parchment upon which are written the rights of liberty and justice, and stripes of blood to vindicate those rights, and then, in the corner, a prediction of the blue serene into which every nation may swim which stands for these great things.

    Woodrow Wilson, Ray Stannard Baker, Howard Seavoy Leach (1926). “The Public Papers of Woodrow Wilson: College and state; educational literary and political papers (1875-1913)”
