Let your flags fly high! On June 14th of each year, the United States of America celebrates the adoption of its official flag which happened to the date in 1777.

It wasn’t until 1916 that President Woodrow Wilson made the day official by creating an official proclamation. Flag Day is a great way to pay your respects to “Old Glory” and all the symbolism that she brings.

Flag Day can be celebrated in many ways, from simply hanging a flag off the front porch to heading downtown to watch a parade. Quincy, Massachusetts is home to the longest running Flag Day parade which has been marching every year since 1952 while Troy,

New York boasts the largest parade with more than 50,000 people in attendance. Flag Day is part of the patriotic season that begins with Memorial Day at the end of May and culminates with Independence Day, July 4th.
