What is Flag Day?

People across the United States celebrate Flag Day on June 14 each year to honor the United States flag and to commemorate the flag`s adoption. On the same day, the United States Army celebrates its birthday. Flag Day falls within National Flag Week, a time when Americans reflect on the foundations of the nation`s freedom. The flag of the United States represents freedom and has been an enduring symbol of the country`s ideals since its early days. During both events, Americans also remember their loyalty to the nation, reaffirm their belief in liberty and justice, and observe the nation`s unity. Many people in the United States honor this day by displaying the American flag at homes and public buildings. Other popular ways of observing this holiday include: flag-raising ceremonies; Flag Day services; school quizzes and essay competitions about the American flag; musical salutes; street parades; and awards for special recognition. Organizations such as The National Flag Day Foundation are actively involved in coordinating activities centered on the event and keeping the flag`s traditions alive. Following Flag Day is Honor America Days, a 21-day period through to Independence Day (July 4) to honor America. During this period, people hold public gatherings and activities to celebrate and honor the nation. See also Flag Day on Wikipedia.
