If you are curious about the origin of the American flag read “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” by Manly P. Hall (which can be downloaded via the internet for free) and “The White Goddess” by Robert Graves. Then watch “The Song of Bernadette”, a 1943 film based on the book of the same title by Franz Werfel.
“The Song of Bernadette” tells the story of Bernadette Soubirous (later, Saint Bernadette) who had the visions at Lourdes, France.
It is my contention that it was not the Mother Mary that Bernadette Soubirous had visions of but the White Goddess.
According to “The White Goddes”s, the White Goddess’ sacred colors are red, white and blue. Her sacred numbers are 13 and 15 displayed as five pointed stars in a circle.
Two of the first flags for the colonies following the American Revolution had 13 and 15 five pointed stars and stripes with the stars being in a circle.
Bernadette Soubirous’ visions occurred above a red wild rose bush. Wild roses only have five petals.
The five pointed star (regular pentagram) demonstrates the golden ratio which all of creation is based on.
Many of our Founding Fathers were involved with the occult/arcane sciences. It is likely they knew of the White Goddess and designed our flag with her in mind.
