Celebrating the adoption day of the United States Flag.
The first celebration was held in 1877 on the 100th anniversary of the Flag Resolution. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed National Flag day in 1916. It became a national day on August 3, 1949 as an Act of Congress.
People celebrate Flag Day in parades, essay contests, ceremonies, and hanging the good ole American flag in front of the home.
The flag resolution was adopted by the Marine Committee of the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The resolution read: “Resolved, that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field representing a new constellation.”
