On June 20th, 1782, the bald eagle was selected as the emblem of the United State of America because of many reasons including it's long life, majestic looks and great strength. The bald eagle is the epitome of freedom, living on the highest of mountain tops where they can enjoy unlimited freedom. The flag comes in a size of about 18 in x 21in. The sign pictured above is carved out of cherry but we have multiple different types of woods that we use, including walnut, maple and oak. THANKS YOU FOR SHOPING MY SHOP.
