Americanism Program

The Americanism program seeks to promote respect for the Flag of the United States of America and foster allegiance to the United States and its customs and institutions.  Republican women’s clubs across Illinois help carry out this mission in their local communities through educational and inspirational programs and projects. For example:

  • Teaching the rules of Flag etiquette

  • Donating patriotic books to libraries and schools

  • Sponsoring patriotic essay contests for schools

  • Presenting flags to schools and community groups

Below are some "Americanism" resource links for your club:
