National Flag Day

When you think of the US flag, what comes to you? You know that the colors are red, white and blue. However, does anything else strike out at you when you think of the flag? You probably don’t have a reason to think about that, but you will on National Flag Day.

June 14th urges you to wave your American flag on National Flag Day. That is the day to not only proudly wave the flag but to show pride in being American. There are other flag days, and not every country in the world shares that day with the American flag day. For instance, the Canadian flag day is not until February, but the American flag day is every June 14th, and more of that will be covered in the history section.

Therefore, if you always noticed people driving around sometime in mid-June waving their flags and hanging in from their cars, then they are celebrating the day. You may already know about the history behind the day since there are many parades that happen that are relevant to the national American day. You will also see the American flag displayed on government buildings as well. If you go banking on this day, you will also see the flag in different areas of the bank. There really is a reason that this day is a big deal, and that so many people have celebrations as well surrounding it because the truth is that being American is a privilege and now let’s get into the history of the day.

The History Of National Flag Day

On June 14th, 1777, the adoption of the American flag happened on that day by the resolution of the Second Continental Congress At the time there were 13 states which is what the red stripes represent, and then there is the union of the 13 stars in the blue field and that also represents a new constellation. In addition to that, the US Army celebrates its birthday and that is why the Congress took over the American continental Army. That was after it reached the consensus position in the Committee of the Whole. That took place on June 14th, 1775.
