What the Pledge of Allegiance Means

By The ITS Crew

United States of America Flag

I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

We’ve been repeating this pledge since grade school, but have you ever taken the time to analyze what each part truly means?

The Boy Scouts have, and below you’ll find their translation for each part of the Pledge.

I pledge allegiance… you promise to be loyal

to the Flag… to the symbol of your country

of the United States of America… a nation of 50 states and several territories, each with certain rights of its own

and to the Republic… a country where the people elect representatives from among themselves to make laws for everyone

for which it stands,… the flag represents the values of our form of government, in which everyone is equal under the law

one Nation under God,… a country formed under God whose people are free to believe as they wish

indivisible,… the nation cannot be split into parts

with liberty and justice… with freedom and a system of law

for all… for every person in the nation, regardless of their differences
