Flag Day

Explore

June 14th is also known as Flag Day. Since it is not a federal holiday, many Americans do not celebrate it or know its origins. 


On May 30th in 1916, former president Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that declared June 14th as Flag Day to commemorate the acceptance of Stars and Stripes as the official flag. 


 

According to legend, in June of 1776, George Washington appointed seamstress Betsy Ross to create a new flag. At a meeting of the First Continental Congress on June 14th, 1777, John Adams said that “the flag of the 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”. 


Since then, there have been 27 official versions of the flag, with the most recent one dating back to July 4th, 1960, when Hawaii became a state.
