The United States Flag Association, founded in 1924 to promote the proper use and display of the American flag, endorsed the United We Stand campaign by sponsoring a contest to honor the best flag-cover designs. The association awarded its Patriotic Service Cross to eight magazines, with the Cross of Honor bestowed as the grand prize for best cover overall. Ten judges, including advertising art director Vaughn Flannery, artist Norman Rockwell, and photographers Edward Steichen and Margaret Bourke-White, selected the winning designs.
