Happy Juneteenth!

Welcome back to the Millennial+Married blog

Happy Juneteenth everyone!

The Juneteenth Flag was created by Ben Haith, founder of the National Juneteenth Celebration Foundation and illustrator, Lisa Graf.

The White Star represents Texas, the Lone Star State. Along with the freedom of Americans across all 50 states.

The Burst Outline represents a nova, the name astronomers use for “new star.” So a new beginning for black Americans of Texas and the rest of America.

The Curved Horizon represents new opportunities and promise that lay ahead for Black Americans.

The Red, White, Blue represents the American Flag. Also, to remind those that former slaves and their descendants were and are American people.
