Today Is National Flag Day!

Today Is National Flag Day!

Today is a very special day in the history of the United States. June 14th has been designated Flag Day in honor of the American flag which to U.S. citizens symbolizes freedom, liberty and human rights. June 14th is the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 and was officially established by President Woodrow Wilson’s presidential proclamation on May 30, 1916. It wasn’t until August 3, 1949 that President Truman signed an Act of Congress deeming June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

Today Is National Flag Day!

What most people do not know about the American flag is that the patriotic colors selected had special meaning. Red was chosen for hardiness and valor, blue for vigilance, perseverance and justice and white signified purity and innocence.

Today, America’s sacred emblem of our country, often referred to as “Old Glory”, stands guard over a “government of the people, by the people, for the people” and deserves our respect and admiration.
