Flag Day

Flag day was established to commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States.   President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation in 1916 that officially established June 14th as Flag Day.

Although, not an official federal holiday, some organizations hold parades and events in celebration of America's national flag and all the it represents. 

Long may she wave~
