Our national flag and our national anthem are patriotic symbols of the nation. The Stars and Stripes were adopted in 1777 and was originally just a naval ensign (a flag flown from ships to show what nationality they were). They only later became a symbol of nationalism used by the public. The Star Spangled Banner was not written until the War of 1812 and it was only in 1931 that it was adopted as our national anthem.

Patriotic symbols represent the nation as a whole, good and bad. They are an emblem, a rallying point.

But to say they "grant our freedoms"?
