Flagpole Eagles - Finish your flag with the symbol of freedom

Just as iconic as the American Flag is the majestic bald eagle. It has been the national bird of the United States since 1782. It is also one of the most pictured birds in all of America, appearing on United States official documents and institutions all over the country in the form of the Great Seal of America. The bird of prey can also be seen on American currency such as one-dollar bills and the opposite side of many U.S. coins.

History of the Eagle in Symbolism

The bald eagle would make its first official appearance in American history on the Massuchettess copper cent back in 1776. While eagles had long been a symbol of strength for centuries prior used in the Roman infantry, most notably the Golden Eagle, the Bald Eagle symbolizes strength as well, along with courage and freedom.

Although it wasn't always an easy decision for the bald eagle to be the national bird or symbol, with Congress lamenting over the process for a whole six long years. Not to mention, not everyone was on board with this as Benjamin Franklin was a strong proponent against the eagle. And while it is speculated that he suggested the turkey be the national bird, he had in fact not, merely comparing the design of the time to the turkey and then going on to discuss the moral attributes of each bird. Franklin writes in a personal letter to his daughter, 

“For my own part, I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen as the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a fish and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him...

I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth, the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”

Obviously, not everyone felt this way about the eagle as throughout history this bird has been seen as a fierce and independent creature with strength, flight, and freedom at the forefront. It is thought that the founding fathers may have borrowed some ideas from Greek and Roman mythology as most of them had just come across the Atlantic from Europe to the new world only years prior. After all, architecture and government at the time were also heavily influenced by the Greeks and Romans. While the bald eagle is indigenous to North America, the Golden Eagle can be seen throughout European history within mythos and time. Zeus's compatriot was an eagle, as was Jupiter's messenger. Even in the times of Mesopotamia, an eagle would serve as a primary heraldic figure. The eagle can also be found on different coats of arms throughout the Arab world and is even on the national flags of Egypt, Mexico, and Zambia.

Unfortunately, our national bird almost faced extinction just under a century ago. The birds mate for life and come back to the same nests year in and year out, making them a particularly easy target for hunters and those who would steal their eggs, Along with this and the natural progression of the country to industrialize the land by means of deforestation, nearly took this creature off the proverbial map. Thankfully, the federal government stepped in 1940 with the Bald Eagle Protection Act which would make it illegal to kill, possess or sell the birds. Thanks to this law as well as regulations involving DDT, the bald eagle population would move up in 1995 from endangered to threatened and in 2007, removed entirely from the list. 

In a letter to the Audubon Society, President John F. Kennedy writes:

"The Founding Fathers made an appropriate choice when they selected the
bald eagle as the emblem of the nation. The fierce beauty and proud
independence of this great bird aptly symbolizes the strength and freedom
of America. But as latter-day citizens, we shall fail our trust if we permit the
eagle to disappear."

Just For Fun

Their nests can weigh a ton, with one of the largest on record weighing 4 thousand pounds.

In the media, most notably on film when a bald eagle is heard, you are actually hearing a red-tailed hawk.
