A Star of a Different Stripe for the 4th of July
NRA Store's Dirk Grove decided to look for something special this year's 4th of July weekend. So what did he find? A NRA
Stars and Stripes Hat.
Fairfax, Virginia - As the nation prepares to celebrate Independence Day, the NRAstore
unveils its new Stars and Stripes hat. Its bold, patriotic color scheme
prompted us to do a little research into the Founding Fathers’ thought
processes while they were designing the first American flag.
In fact, America’s first leaders allowed the flag’s innate
symbolism to remain a mystery for almost five years after its adoption. It was
not until 1782 that Charles Thompson, Secretary of the Continental Congress,
revealed its true meaning:
“White signifies purity and
innocence, Red, hardiness and valor, and Blue…signifies vigilance, perseverance
Our Stars and Stripes hat embodies all those uniquely
American characteristics, and more. The bright, patriotic splash of red, white
and blue on the bill is accompanied by an intricately embroidered NRA eagle,
complete with our organization’s famous crossed rifles. The NRA block letters
appear on a red fabric tab, solidifying the NRA’s indivisible connection to
American history, and its position as a profoundly patriotic institution. On
the rear, “NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION” appears in a graceful arc.
The 100% cotton NRA
Stars and Stripes Hat is the ideal way to keep the sun out of your eyes,
while you look toward the future and pay respect to the past. You can get one
of your very own, along with over a thousand other NRA branded products, at NRAstore.com.
