What’s Flag Day? It’s the American celebration of the birthday of the Stars and Stripes. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress passed a resolution “that the flag of the thirteen United States shall be thirteen stripes of alternate red and white, with a union of thirteen stars of white on a blue field, representing the new constellation”. So Happy 238th birthday, Old Glory. Long may you wave, o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.-Flag Day: What it means
