Flag Day

Flag Day, observed annually on June 14th in the United States, commemorates the adoption of the American flag on that date in 1777. The Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, approved a resolution that established the design of the flag: thirteen alternating red and white stripes, representing the thirteen original colonies, and a blue field with thirteen white stars, representing the states of the newly formed Union.

Flag Day was first proposed in 1885 by Bernard Cigrand, a Wisconsin schoolteacher, to instill patriotism and respect for the American flag in children. The idea gained traction over the years, and in 1949, President Harry Truman signed a bill establishing June 14th as Flag Day. The holiday was intended to promote the display of the American flag and to encourage citizens to learn about its history and significance.

On Flag Day, Americans celebrate the enduring symbol of their nation. They participate in parades, ceremonies, and other events that honor the flag and the principles it represents. Schools and community organizations often hold educational programs to teach students about the flag's history and proper display. The holiday also serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made by those who have fought under the American flag.
