Flag Day

June 14 is celebrated as Flag Day each year. This day was chosen to commemorate¬†adoption of ¬†the “Stars and Stripes” as the United States flag in 1777. Although it had been celebrated in various locales for a number of years, the holiday wasn’t recognized as the National Flag Day until President Harry S Truman signed an Act of Congress on August 3, 1949.
