Flag Day!


posted June 14, 2016
It was June 14th, 1777 when John Adams spoke about the flag at a meeting of the Continental Congress in Philadelphia: "Resolved, that the flag of the thirteen United States shall be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the Union be thirteen stars, white on a blue field, representing a new constellation, " he said.  Since then, there have been twenty-seven official versions of the flag. Stars have been added to it as states have entered the Union. The current version dates to July 4, 1960, when Hawaii became the 50th state.
