In honor of Flag Day today, which commemorates the adoption of the American Flag, I rounded up some of my favorite interpretations  of American flag t-shirts for kids.

I know that when I was a kid, I absolutely adored my denim vest printed with the stars and stripes, which I proudly wore on every occasion with even a hint of national significance or appreciation. So I imagine plenty of kids today feel that way too.

What I love most about these t-shirts is that rather than just celebrating the American flag itself, they’re reminding us that it’s a symbol of all the things that make America special: Peace, love, acceptance, diversity. And since this Flag Day falls during the wake of a national tragedy, I think it’s even more important that we stand together as Americans and show our true colors.
