Did you know that while there is a lot of speculation over why our flag is red, white and blue, the Continental Congress never actually left any official record as to their reasoning behind Old Glory’s color scheme?! Some historians say that it stands for hardiness and valor while others say its a nod to the British. Regardless of meaning, this smoothie nails the red stripes in this nation’s flag to a T. Just make sure it doesn’t end up on your white shirt, it will leave its mark!
