Stars and Stripes have represented the nation’s growth

Every June 14, the United States celebrates Flag Day.

Flag Day in the United States celebrates the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as our nation’s flag June 14, 1777. The holiday is observed every year on that date.

Flag Day wasn’t a nationally observed event until a proclamation in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson. It also isn’t a federal holiday.

Beyond that, how much do you know actually know about one of our more overlooked annual holidays and the flag it honors?

A change is gonna come

Most Americans have heard the story of Betsy Ross being the creator of the U.S. flag (though history now mostly disagrees with that assessment).
