The Pledge of Allegiance

         

The Pledge of Allegiance

The Pledge of Allegiance

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

The Pledge of Allegiance was written by Francis Bellamy and printed in a Boston magazine on September 8, 1892. The first pledge read, "I pledge allegiance to my flag and the republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." The words "of the United States of America" were added sometime later. On Flag Day, 1954, President Eisenhower signed a law which added the words "under God" to the pledge.

Do you know what all of the words in the Pledge of Allegiance mean?

A pledge is a promise.

Allegiance means to be loyal or true.

The republic means the US government, a government in which the people elect their leaders.

Indivisible means something cannot be divided.

Liberty is freedom.

Justice is fairness.


Section 4 of the Flag Code states:

The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag: "I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.", should be rendered by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. When not in uniform men should remove any non-religious headdress with their right hand and hold it at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart. Persons in uniform should remain silent, face the flag, and render the military salute."
