June 14th Flag Day

No matter what country you are from, you should be proud of your flag. A lot of people died to make sure you had one, the symbol of your country and all that it has accomplished. There are a lot of rules about how to fly and protect your flag, too many to go over here, but a few include not letting it touch the ground, not flying it upside down, and only flying it in daylight unless it is lit. Our flag here in the US was first called the Continental Colors and was first flown June 14th, 1777. It is said Betsy Ross created it but now we are not sure. Flag Day was created here by Woodrow Wilson in 1916 though many individuals proudly flew their flags long before that.

How to celebrate – Respect your flag. Honor your country. Design your own family flag.
