Flag Day

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Capital Partners Realty 277320

Good morning and Happy Flag Day, which commemorates the day in 1777 that the Stars and Stripes was first adopted. Here are some other flag facts:

  • The current design is the 27th iteration of the flag and the longest-used design, since the US hasn’t added a new state since 1959 (plus the 51st star would mess up the symmetry).
  • Despite what you may have learned in middle school, there’s no evidence Betsy Ross had any role in making the first flag.
  • Last year, four senators introduced the All-American Flag Act to require the federal government to exclusively buy American flags made in the USA. As of 2017, the US imported 10 million American flags from abroad, 99.5% of which were made in China.
