What is Flag Day celebrated for?

Every June 14 Flag Day is celebrated, in recognition of the fact that the Continental Congress decree about what the American flag would look like

Flag Day is the occasion on which the Second Continental Congress declared that the American flag would have “13 stripes, alternate red and white,”

And in addition on that “13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation” on 7 June 1777.

Since then, there have been 27 different versions of the American flag, and stars have been added as states joined the Union.

Although Wilson declared Flag Day a holiday during his presidency, Flag Day is not a “legal public holiday” under federal law.

Flag Day is often celebrated by communities, schools, and veterans groups through events such as parades, picnics, and ceremonies.

Many Americans celebrate Flag Day by displaying the red, white, and blue flags with 50 stars and 13 stripes in front of homes and businesses.

Flag Day was founded by a school teacher named Bernard J. Cigrand, who began observing the day with his class at Stony Hill School in Wisconsin

On Flag Day, many towns and cities hold parades and events to celebrate the flag, and the colors are to be flown at all government buildings.
