Description

A man stands on a rock out at sea with a chain, septor, and crown crushed at his feet as he waves the American flag. A personification of Liberty steps down from the clouds to crown him with laurels. A sailing ship and lighthouse lie in the background. A banner underneath the scene reads, "We Owe No Allegiance To No Crown". A caption underneath reads, "'Liberty' crowns a serviceman in "Flags Through the Ages and Across the World".
