Flag Day has just passed, and Independence Day is right around the corner. During this time of the year, Americans stand a little taller and walk a little prouder because of the pride in the country and the freedom the country has had for the last 242 years. Here at Fine Art America, we are so proud of our country and what it represents, we put America in our name. In honor of the country’s upcoming birthday, we offer one of our curated collections here.

The Flag

The American flag has had different meanings for different people. While some semblance of the flag has been around since the beginnings of the nation, the country did not attach symbolic significance until the Civil War. For example, the stars on the field of blue, indicate all of the states and their loyalty to the country. White indicates the purity of the nation and the laws. Red indicates the blood of soldiers that was given in defense of the nation. Several representations of the flag exist in our curated collection. While photos of the American flag are ubiquitous this time of year, our artists have used the image of the American flag and created art from that art. American flags are displayed on animals, as a symbol of our democracy, behind a president or as a battered emblem of strife or battle. The flag is also shown on costumes and landmarks. In other words, if you want to find an American flag to display, you can find one here. Flag art has a place anywhere American quotes, sayings or architecture is displayed.

Americana

The country has been so famous for its beliefs that it has been a landmark for art since its inception. Americana signifies artifacts from American history or American art. They represent American cultural and artistic heritage. Several different types of Americana are available here. There are many multimedia presentations of Americana. License plates are used to create designs depicting the nation, or individual states and cities. The artifacts of wars and soldiers are also used to symbolize the sacrifice of soldiers and their families for American ideals. In addition, old commercial and propaganda posters have been used to create Americana art.

The Americana collection contains paintings, drawings, and mixed media presentations of art that is truly American and unique. Americana art could be used to decorate your home, tucked away in small spaces with antiques or primitives or in large spaces with flags, medals or maps.

Red, white and blue are some of the most beautiful colors in the world–we know, we happen to be biased. The French agreed with the color use, or maybe they just agreed with our ideals, because they have the same colors on their flag, as does the United Kingdom. Whether you are a true-blue patriot, or whether you just want to feel like one this time of the year, there is a star-spangled piece of art that would be right at home in your collection.
