Show Your Patriotism With These Kind Acts

The 4th of July is one of the most celebrated holidays in this country. Many people spend the day having backyard cookouts with friends and families, visiting veterans, or volunteering to put memorial flowers on those who served. Showing your love for the U.S. of A. is a great way to celebrate this day and every day, too. Here at Walter Knoll Florist, we’re providing a list of some of our favorite ways to be patriotic, including picking up beautiful floral arrangements in red, white, and blue to add some festive colors and fresh blooms to your Independence Day.

7 Ways to Show Your Patriotism


Attend or throw a party with plenty of red, white, and blue decor to showcase your patriotic spirit. Spend time among friends, family, and neighbors, with traditional food, games, music, and festivities. Hot dogs, water balloons, sparklers, and cold refreshments are about as American as you can get. Add a few fresh floral arrangements in red, white, and blue and enjoy the day.

Attend a Patriotic Parade

All across the nation, there will be Independence Day parades celebrating soldiers, veterans, and military families who have played a part in serving our country. Find the nearest parade and take your family to behold the experience. Watching veterans, military personnel, flags, and decorative floats go by is a great way to show your patriotism as well as feel the patriotic pride build up within you.

Support a Veteran

Offer to assist veterans in your community by running errands for them, picking up their groceries, mowing their lawns, or providing transportation for them. If you don’t know any veterans in your area, contact your local VA facility and ask how you can donate your time, money, or services to benefit veterans and their families.

Fly the Stars and Stripes

Hang the American flag outside your house to show patriotism, just make sure it is displayed correctly. For example, the flag should not touch the ground and should fly above any other flag being displayed. If you are displaying the flag at night, it must be illuminated.

Visit a National Park or Historic Landmark

America’s National Parks are some of the most beautiful and well-maintained parks in the world. Usually operating on a tight budget, it’s easy to support our national parks by visiting them, joining their Friends of the Park organization, or donating to your favorite park. Also, our nation’s landmarks and monuments commemorate our country’s natural wonders and historically important sites, which are all worth visiting.

Shop Local & Buy American

The best way to show your patriotism is by supporting the small businesses in your community. Shopping locally-owned companies and Made-in-America products puts money back into your local economy and benefits the overall national economy.

Display Patriotic Blooms

Beautify your yard and show your patriotism by planting flowers in red, white, and blue in your yard or placing them in hanging planters on your porch. Enhance your interior with patriotic blooms displayed in your kitchen or on your mantle. You can also gift a patriotic arrangement to military families or veterans to brighten their day, or place them on a soldier’s grave in honor of their service. Use the below guide of flowers that symbolize patriotism to select your blooms:

  • Rose – It’s America’s national flower!
  • Freesias – Flowy and beautiful, these blooms symbolize freedom.
  • Edelweiss – These charming white flowers are shaped like stars and signify strength and courage.
  • Guernsey Lilies – This type of lily is unique in its resemblance to a firework, and it represents freedom and good fortune.
  • Black-Eyed Susans – These bright yellow flowers have a star-burst shape and symbolize justice.
