Happy Flag Day

Flag Day 2011

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States of America! 

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 week of June 14 is designated as “National Flag Week.”  During National Flag Week, the president will issue a proclamation urging U.S. citizens to fly the American flag for the duration of that week.  The flag should also be displayed on all government buildings.  Some organizations hold parades and events in celebration of America’s national flag and everything it represents.
