Celebrating ‚ÄúOld Glory‚Äù
Flag Day falls on the 14th of June each year and is a celebration to honor the United States flag and commemorate its adoption as the first national flag. It is falls during National Flag Week, a time when Americans reflect the foundations of our freedom.
Many Americans celebrate Flag Day by displaying the flag on their homes and public buildings. Some communities hold Flag Day parades and celebrations.
The U.S. Flag Code establishes guidelines for proper display of the American flag. For more information on Flag Day and proper flag etiquette, the National Flag Day Foundation is a great source of information http://www.nationalflagday.com/default.asp.
