Raising Your Standards

I know, coming from a multi-generational military family, that STANDARDS are flags.

I even know a little bit about the history of STANDARDS.

They are called several names : Colours, Flags, Oriflammes, Pennants etc

To Raise The Standard used to mean To Fly YOUR Flag. As High As Possible so that everyone could see it. Friend and foe alike.

P.S. I know this film is Historical BS….but it always makes me cry. Because it carries the true essence of MY country. FacT!
