(Mineola, NY) Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell recently spoke to students at Buckley Country Day School in Roslyn about our Nations Flag. Clerk O’Connell addressed the students about the importance of the Flag, its history and how to honor it. The Clerk is pleased to provide area schools with brochures about our Great Nations Flag and the proper etiquette to be observed to show respect to it. A key to understanding our Nation’s history can be found in the evolution of our ‘Stars and Stripes’. The American Flag is a symbol of the freedoms and liberties we as a country have fought for and defended throughout our rich history. Teaching our children the traditions of our flag and how to display proper reverence towards it is an important part of their learning experience.
