The Christmas ornament commemorates an exhibition entitled Lincoln's Legacy. At its front, a flag-much like the United States flag-appears. Abraham Lincoln's right-facing profile and four stars appear instead of the traditional fifty stars. Layered over the flag is a diamond-shaped frame and text. A red silk hanging ribbon is also attached.
