Happy Flag Day!

Since 1777, the American flag has represented unity and freedom for Americans and millions of others. Flag Day allows us to celebrate not only freedom but the symbol of it as well.

Why is it celebrated on June 14th?
On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress ...adopted the "Stars and Stripes" as the original American flag. The same flag was used when the Declaration of Independence was signed to give a flag for the entire country rather than each state having their own.

To celebrate Flag Day, you can:
Display a high-quality American flag outside of your home and follow the U.S. Flag Code.
Learn about the symbolism and history of the US flag, such as the meaning of the stars and stripes.
Read a book about the US flag, such as F is for Flag by Wendy Cheyette Lewison or The Flag Maker by Susan Campbell Bartoletti.
Host a Flag Day parade with your friends, family, or neighbors and wave flags or wear patriotic colors.
Sing a song about the flag, such as The Star-Spangled Banner or You're a Grand Old Flag.
