HOLIDAY: Happy Flag Day!

14 Jun

Every June 14th, the United States of America celebrates Flag Day, to commemorate the adoption of the Flag by the Second Continental Congress on the same day in 1777.

Have you ever quilted the American Flag?

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, though on June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday.

The week of June 14 is designated as “National Flag Week.” During National Flag Week, the president will issue a proclamation urging U.S. citizens to fly the American flag for the duration of that week. The flag should also be displayed on all Government buildings. Some organizations hold parades and events in celebration of America’s national flag and everything it represents.
