Every June 14th, millions of Americans across the country display or gather around the US national flag, celebrating the values it stands for. This day, known as Flag Day, is an opportunity to show your love for your country and your family and friends. And if you ask us, there’s no better way to do that than with a few flag-inspired designs. Here at ArtistShot, you’ll find thousands of them!
Why We Celebrate Flag Day
When the original thirteen colonies gained independence from the British rule, their first order of business was to create a new flag. On the 14th June 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed an act that determined what that flag would look like. The first version of “Stars and Stripes” had thirteen alternating red and white stripes and thirteen stars.
But Flag Day celebrations didn’t start until a century later — in 1861, the city of Hartford was the first to observe it. After that, the celebrations were quite sporadic until President Woodrow Wilson officially designated June 14th as the anniversary of the Flag Resolution. President Truman was ultimately the one who established Flag Day as we know it today — in 1949.
Nowadays, on Flag Day, all government buildings, schools, police and fire departments are required to fly the national flag. Citizens don’t have to, but many still do in order to express their patriotism. Across the country, people go to concerts, parades, and festivals held to celebrate this holiday. In addition, many museums have special Flag Day exhibitions which attract many visitors.
