Independence Day is that day every year when we celebrate American freedom by gathering around grills, backyards and pools. Then we top off the day by watching fireworks light up the night sky. We ooh and ahh as they burst gloriously beneath the moonlight.
To celebrate in style, we recommend a bit of new gear that fits in the holiday spirit.
Our US Eagle design is as American as they come — and it comes in a T-shirt and a sticker. The design pays tribute to American heroes in every walk of life, from our founding fathers to our incredible military to the first responders who sacrifice so much to take care of us all.
The bald eagle has been recognized as a symbol of the United States since 1782, back when the Revolutionary War was still being waged. After much debate, the eagle was selected for prominent display on the Great Seal of the United States. The bald eagle, specifically, was chosen because it is the only eagle native solely to North America.
Its image creates a uniting thread that carries through the centuries and from coast to coast as a symbol of courage, strength and freedom. Its history, like American history, is one of perseverance and resilience.
Between the late 1800s and the 1960s, the bald eagle faced a severe population decline, dropping from more than 100,000 breeding pairs to just 400 in the continental US. Yet thanks to decades of federal protections, the bald eagle returned and thrived. It was removed from the federal Endangered Species List in 2007.
Now it can be seen all over the country in all its glory.
When you’re sporting our US Eagle T-shirt, you’ll be in all your glory, too.
Maybe the US Eagle shirt and sticker just aren’t enough to display the full measure of your patriotism. You need an entire collection. Completely understandable. We’re like that, too.
In fact, we’ve been creating patriotic gear to show off our pride in our country for years, and we especially love when we combine it with the pride we take in being part of the firefighting community.
Want to show some love for the United States military?
The FDC Military Green Shirt is a salute to our fellow firefighters and all our service members. It features a subdued Fire Dept. Coffee text on the chest and the Fire Dept. Coffee Maltese Cross logo on the sleeve. Let’s not also forget our FDC Green Hat that’s a nod to our fellow firefighters and service members.
You can’t go wrong with any of these options — on Independence Day or all year long. Because we don’t show our pride or celebrate freedom only on July 4th. We are proud Americans 365 days a year.
