Did you know – Flag Day is officially celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which occurred 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.

The flag of today grew out of many earlier flags raised in days gone by over American soil. The flag of the United States of America today has 13 stripes – 7 red and 6 white – and 50 white stars on a blue field – five rows of 6 and four rows of 5. The stripes remind us of the 13 original colonies that gained us our liberty. The stars represent the states that are bound together into one country.

“The flag of the United States has not been created by rhetorical sentences in declarations of independence and in bills of rights. It has been created by the experience of a great people, and nothing is written upon it that has not been written by their life. It is the embodiment, not of a sentiment, but of a history.” ~ Woodrow Wilson
