Flag Day
June 14, 2018

June 14, is Flag Day.

Flag Day is celebrated to commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777, by the Second Continental Congress.

Congress specified that the new flag should have "thirteen stripes of alternate red and white, with a union of thirteen stars of white in a blue field, representing the new constellation." Each of the stars represented one of the original 13 colonies, then came to represent the states. Our current flag, with 50 stars, was adopted in 1959, when Alaska and Hawaii became states.
