Flag Day Background
In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson declared that June 14th be the official date for Flag Day. This means this year we are celebrating the 102nd Anniversary of Flag Day! However, this was not the first time that Flag Day was actually celebrated. In 1885, a Wisconsin schoolteacher arranged for his students to observe June 14 as Flag Birthday, as it commemorates the adoption of the US flag on June 14, 1777 by the resolution of the Second Continental Congress. This inspired a nationwide trend of celebrating Flag Day unofficially for three decades before President Wilson made it official with his proclamation. Then, in 1949, President Truman actually signed an Act of Congress that made June 14th National Flag Day.
