Flag Day

Sunday, June 14, 2020


Flag Day began back in 1916 when President Woodrow Wilson issued a presidential proclamation establishing a national Flag Day on June 14th.

Since its beginning, Americans have honored the day by displaying their stars and stripes at their homes, businesses, in parades, and through events/celebrations.

Congress drafted legislation which was later signed into law by President Harry Truman on 1949 designating the day. 

The legislation also calls for the current president of the United State of America to issue a flag day proclamation every year.
