Flag Day

06/14/2022 17:33 | Anonymous

The adoption of the flag of the United States took place on 14 June 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; on August 3, 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday. Title 36 of the United States Code, Subtitle I, Part A, CHAPTER 1, ยง 110[4] is the official statute on Flag Day; however, it is at the president's discretion to officially proclaim the observance.
