is a celebration of the adoption of the American Flag by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. However, Flag Day wasn’t officially recognized until President Harry Truman signed it into law in 1949.
The week of June 14 is designated as “National Flag Week” and all U.S. citizens are urged to fly the American Flag for the duration of that week. The flag should also be displayed on all Government buildings and schools. Some organizations hold parades and events in celebration of our national flag and everything it represents. It’s also a time to remember and honor military men and women who defend our flag and our country.
Let’s All Do Our Part To Honor Flag Day
