The words "the flag of the United States" are substituted for "my Flag" in the Pledge of Allegiance. The phrase "my flag" has been part of the Pledge of Allegiance since Francis Bellamy wrote it in 1892.

There has been an explosion of immigration in the United States in recent years and attendees at the first National Flag Conference in Washington, D.C., organized by the leadership of the American Legion and the Daughters of the American Revolution, are concerned that there might be some confusion about what exactly "my flag" is supposed to mean.

So they decide to bypass any possible confusion or misperception and specify exactly what flag people are supposed to be pledging their allegiance to.
