First State of One Liberty One World

Today, the United States of America celebrates Flag Day to commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

This purple flag must to be known to all One Liberty One World citizens in the universe.

Flag of the Iroquois Confederacy


The nation that bears this flag is now the first state of One Liberty One World. Just like Delaware is the first state of the United States.

The Iroquois Confederacy (16th century or earlier) is older than the Powhatan Confederacy (late 16th and early 17th centuries), the Maratha Confederacy (from 1674 to 1818), and the Sikh Confederacy (1707-1799).

The Iroquois did not have link to European knowledge about Republic and Democracy.

A History Lesson

Historians in the 20th century have suggested the Iroquois system of government influenced the development of the Articles of Confederation or United States Constitution. Consensus has not been reached on how influential the Iroquois model was to the development of the United States’ documents. The influence thesis has been discussed by historians such as Donald Grinde and Bruce Johansen.

In 1988, the United States Congress passed a resolution to recognize the influence of the Iroquois League upon the Constitution and Bill of Rights.


Iroquois League, Five Nations, Six Nations

Iroquois Confederacy, also called Iroquois League, Five Nations, or (from 1722) Six Nations, confederation of five (later six) Indian tribes across upper New York state that during the 17th and 18th centuries played a strategic role in the struggle between the French and British for mastery of North America. The five Iroquois nations, characterizing themselves as “the people of the longhouse,” were the Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga, and Seneca. After the Tuscarora joined in 1722, the confederacy became known to the English as the Six Nations and was recognized as such at Albany, New York (1722).

Tradition credits the formation of the confederacy, between 1570 and 1600, to Dekanawidah, born a Huron, who is said to have persuaded Hiawatha, an Onondaga living among Mohawks, to abandon cannibalism and advance “peace, civil authority, righteousness, and the great law” as sanctions for confederation. Cemented mainly by their desire to stand together against invasion, the tribes united in a common council composed of clan and village chiefs; each tribe had one vote, and unanimity was required for decisions. The joint jurisdiction of 50 peace chiefs, known as sachems, embraced all civil affairs at the intertribal level.
