The American flag was officially adopted by a resolution by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. Flag Day wasn't officially recognized until signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1949.
The week of June 14 is designated as National Flag week. We do this to honor all that our great nation represents, which is freedom, equality and justice for all. These principles and ideas are the embodied in the American flag.
Our American Flag is the fabric of our country and by flying the American Flag we can be reminded that we can prevail against all adversity.
