Flag Day

Happy Flag Day!

Today celebrates the adoption of “Old Glory” as the United States’ first national flag on June 14, 1777. Although Flag Day is not a federal holiday, take notice of the flags displayed on government buildings today and parades happening around the country. What does Flag Day mean to you?

  1. For me, Flag Day conjures memories of my dad–he always flies a gigantic American flag outside his house and outside his business. For him, Flag Day is every day!

  2. Well…the usual, of course, but when I think of Flag Day the first thing I think of is my parents’ anniversary. And they are 2 of my very favorite people and without that special day there wouldn’t be me, so it’s kind of an important reminder. 🙂

  3. Anytime I think of the early origins of America and all of its traditions and symbols, I think of our founding fathers and all of the hard work, sacrifice, and wisdom they gave to creating such a beautiful place for us.
