American Eagle Day

American Eagle Day celebrates one of the most recognizable American national symbols – the once-endangered bald eagle.
On the front side of the Great Seal of the United States, a bald eagle is depicted holding an olive branch in its right talon and 13 arrows in its left. The olive branch and arrows symbolize the United States' commitment to peace and its readiness for war, while the number of arrows – 13 – refers to the original 13 states.
