I'M Your Flag

I'm your flag; I'm red, white, and blue;
I'm the symbol of freedom you look up to;
I've been here more than two-hundred-twenty years;
Through good times, and hard times; through laughter and tears;
Through battles and wars - I know the count;
To lay on coffins - I remember the exact amount;
There have been so many who believe in me;
They gave up their lives for their belief in liberty;
They didn't ask, "What's in it for me?";
