Flag Day

flag.jpegMonday June 14th is Flag Day, a holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Continental Congress adopting the Stars and Stripes as the official U.S. Flag on June 14, 1777.

If you own a flag and plan to display it, you should follow the guidelines for flag display established at 4 U.S.C. Chapter 1. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has published guidelines on their website. For instance, if you display your flag after sunset, make sure it's illuminated.
