Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima

The iconic photograph of Marines raising the flag on the island of Iwo Jima was taken on January 23rd, 1945 -68 years ago today. Since then, the image by Joe Rosenthal has been used in so many ways, from stamps to album covers to the cake you see here by Cake Central. The imagery has also been parodied in a variety of ways, to "raise the flag" for many different causes. See an extensive selection of those homages and parodies at the U.S. Naval Institute blog.
