I respect what the flag of the United States of America stands for:
One nation, magnificent in its diversity, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.


Note on the background color:  The background color for this site has been named by me "light yellow ivory."  In the RGB scheme of colors for the World-wide Web, the code for the color is #ffffe8.  Hopefully your browser is capable of properly recognizing it. With respect to blue intensity, it is halfway between the "safe palette" color of "light yellow," for which the RGB code is #ffffe0, and the "safe palette" color of "ivory," for which the RGB code is #fffff0.  More importantly, in the grand scheme of things, light yellow ivory is the color of the universe. See The Cosmic Spectrum.
