The History of Flag Day

Flag Day was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. Some state and local communities celebrated Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777, but it wasn't an organized effort.

While Flag Day was celebrated after Wilson's proclamation, It was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

Most Americans let this day pass as any other day! Let's get those flags flying everyday and display them correctly! We are a proud and mighty nation and we need to keep those flags flying!

I hope you have a great weekend, if we can assist you in making it great in Big Bear, please give us a call!
