Here in the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th. It’s the day of remembrance for the adoption of our flag, which happened on June 14th, 1777 by the Second Continental Congress. The United States Army also celebrates its birthday on this date.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949. Flag Day is not an official federal holiday; however, it is at the President’s discretion to officially proclaim the “holiday”. On June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first State to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday.
