ABSTRACT
The article traces the history of the first time that the flag of the U.S. was waved. Former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt led the waving of the U.S. flag on December 16, 1907, which also projected the U.S. power around the world. On that day, the U.S. Atlantic Fleet assembled in the bay with gilt scrollwork and signal flags. They were dispatched by Roosevelt to send his message that the U.S. has arrived as a global naval power. The article presents photographs showing such historical event.
