Celebrating National Flag Day

Today is Flag Day ~ Let us all celebrate this great Nation by flying the flag until July 4th or year round if you like.

Flag Day was first observed on June 14, 1916, under a proclamation from President Woodrow Wilson. The annual celebration was written into law in August 1949 when President Harry Truman signed legislation that designated June 14 as Flag Day. In June 1966, Congress passed a joint resolution requesting that the president issue annually a proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs as National Flag Week.
