Free Patriotic Vintage American Flag Clip Art

This free vintage American flag clip art is obviously perfect for celebrating Flag Day, or Memorial Day or Veterans Day, for that matter.

In case you’re not aware, Flag Day is the anniversary of the official adoption of the American flag by the Marine Committee of the Continental Congress in 1777. Woodrow Wilson proclaimed June 14 as the first official National Flag Day in 1916 but it wasn’t until 1949 that an Act of Congress was signed to formally establish the holiday. Interestingly, though, Flag Day isn’t a given; it’s at the president’s discretion to officially proclaim the observance each year. That is unless you live in Pennsylvania, which is the only state that recognizes it as a legal holiday.

Should you really crave more information about Flag Day, see Title 36 Sec. 110 of the US Code, which is the official statute governing its celebration.

Feel free to use the following authentic vintage American flag images as clip art, for scrap-booking or even to decorate a classroom.

  3. I am very interested in the vintage patriotic images you have. there is one in particular with children marching with the American flag that we would like to use on our promotional brochures for our organization. Can you please tell me how I can get permission to use this?

  4. Hi, Kimberly. If you’ll be producing fewer than 50 copies, you may use the image for free, as long as you give a credit to in the brochure. If you’ll be producing between 51 and 1,000 copies, you can obtain permission by providing a credit and purchasing the Vintagerio license on this page: (You must purchase through that link or the Vintagerio ad in the sidebar for it to qualify.) If you will be printing more than 1,000 copies, please contact me using the e-mail address on the Terms of Use page so I can give you a quote.

    Thanks! 🙂
