“Flag Day” is celebrated on this day to commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States in 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The idea of a day set aside to specifically celebrate the flag is believed to have originated by a Wisconsin school-teacher in 1885. BJ Cigrand, arranged for the pupils in Fredonia Public School District 6 to observe June 14th, the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of the Stars and Stripes, as ‘Flag Birthday’. But, it wasn’t until May 30th, 1916…that the anniversary of the Flag Resolution was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson. Thirty-three years later, President Trumann signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.
