Flag Day

      The first flags were likely used to assist military coordination on battlefields. Since than, flags have evolved into a general tool for rudimentary signaling and identification. One of the most popular uses of a flag is to symbolize a nation or country. If you were to study flags you would want to become a vexillogist.

      Today, in the United States is Flag Day a day set aside to commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777. In1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; and in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

      Dear Lord, Thank you
  • For the flag and freedoms it represents
