Happy - Flag Day - June 14 commemorates the adoption of the American flag

    In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. It was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.
