Patriotic Fruit Flag
Serve this Patriotic Fruit Flag on Independence Day, Flag Day, election day, or any time the season is right. Summer is the time when fruits and berries are ripe, luscious, and sweet. This display of red, white, and blue is quick to assemble, fun, and one children, teens, and adults alike can create. Assemble the fruit into a flag design on a handsome food tray, create a number of flags on several platters, or scale up in size to fit an entire table for a dramatic effect.
Gently wash and dry the blueberries, black cherries, strawberries, and raspberries.
Fill a small bowl with blueberries.
On a food tray, evenly distribute the black cherries, white candy coated pretzels, strawberries, and raspberries to form the red and white stripes.
*Cookery Facts: Strawberries are fruits, not berries. First bred in France with a cross between a species from Chile and one from the United States.
*History Facts: The heraldry of the flag is significant. The white stripes symbolize purity and innocence. Red symbolizes hardiness and valor. The blue field symbolizes vigilance, perseverance, and justice. Each star signifies a state within the union, a new constellation, or divine goal of the nation. Also of significance is the number of stripes; 13 to represent the original colonies.
