Flag Day

Flag Day, an annual celebration of the American flag, takes place on the anniversary of its official adoption, June 14.

The emblem we affectionately call the "Stars and Stripes" was designated as the official American flag by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777, during the Revolutionary War. Colonial troops fought under diverse flags featuring different symbols such as rattlesnakes, pine trees, and eagles, along with various slogans like "Don't Tread on Me," "Liberty or Death," and "Conquer or Die," among others.
