Tomorrow is Flag Day, Will You Be Flying the Stars & Stripes?
Tomorrow is June 14th, which by Presidential Proclamation is Flag Day. The proclamation has been issued every year since 1941 as “a day to honor America.” June 14th is also the day when the Stars & Stripes were officially adopted as the flag of our country
in 1777. On that day, John Adams introduced the following resolution before the Continental Congress in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: “Resolved that the flag of the 13 United States shall be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white, that the union be thirteen stars, white on a blue field, representing a new constellation.”
So be sure to fly the flag of the United States of America tomorrow and every day. If you fly your flag at night, make sure that you have a light shining on it.
Mine will continue to be displayed proudly in front of my home.
By the way, if you need to purchase a new flag to celebrate Flag Day, try to find one that is made in America.
