All About Flag Day

Celebrating Flag Day in Rutland VT

By Catherine Heatley, Publisher Mom, Macaroni Kid Rutland-Windsor VT June 11, 2021

Did you know that June 14th is Flag Day in the United States? 

Since 1949, Flag Day commemorates the day in 1777 that the American Flag was adopted as our national flag. President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed July 14th as Flag Day in 1916, but Congress didn't formally approve the day until 1949. It isn't a national holiday, but Pennsylvania does observe it as a state holiday, and there are specific rules for handling and displaying your flag. 

So what was the first American Flag? Check out this history by and see the flag design that was used in 1777, as well as the many designs that came before and after.
