Today is Flag Day! On May 30, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued an official presidential proclamation to establish Flag Day on June 14th. Many Americans show their patriotism of Flag Day by displaying our Nation’s beautiful flag in front of homes and businesses. This day celebrates the adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States!
