Thank a service member for their service this Memorial Day Weekend with a Revolutionary coloring page. Download, print, and color a coloring page from the Museum, based on Washington's Standard, with a special message of gratitude for service members.

Washington’s Standard, the blue silk flag that marked General George Washington’s presence on the battlefield during the Revolutionary War, is part of the Museum's collection. The silk and linen flag was conserved with funds provided by the Pennsylvania Society of Sons of the Revolution and its Color Guard.
