Happy Flag Day  June 14, 2021

Happy Flag Day June 14, 2021

While it is not known as a national holiday and business will continue as usual today, it deserves a day of recognition as a symbol of our great country.

Some noteworthy days as relates to the flag:

 

January 1, 1776: The first United States flag, the “Grand Union,” was displayed by George Washington. Of course all know that it was credited to Betsy Ross as the designed and creator of the first flag.

 

June 14, 1777: The Stars and Stripes were adopted by the Continental Congress as the Flag of the United States.

 

June 14, 1877: Flag Day was observed nationally for the first time on the 100th anniversary of the Stars and Stripes—and continues today.

 

 

In 1814, the flag flying after a heavy bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812 with the British was the inspiration for Francis Scott Key to write a poem which eventually became our Star Spangled Banner.

 

 

Feb 23, 1945, a group of battle worn marines raise the flag on Mt Suribachi as the US forces stated their island hoping campaign to ultimately bring an end to the war in the pacific.

 

Our flag has a deep history for it's significance as we as a nation have fought for our freedom and over the years the fight to protect freedom around the world.

 

We happily fly our flag as proud Americans and appreciate those that do it for the same reasons.
