According to recent reports, a 90-year-old Navy Vet who served during World II is on a mission to improve our flag.
Samuel J. Kapral loves America, and claims that he has always been concerned by the limited space for stars of the flag.
“Why are they such a limited area?” he told WCBS-TV, claiming that from a distance they are unrecognizable. “I know some people are very sentimental about this.”
Kapral started to redesign the flag about four years ago, finally settling on a look that expands the blue field for the stars to nearly half of the flag. His own son doubts that the new design will gain traction.
“That’s his proposed design?” one New Yorker told WCBS after being shown the design. “No, why should we change it?”
Some argue that the flag is highly symbolic of our country, and people are too attached to the current design to alter it.
