Flag Day in the United States

Flag Day in the United States

Although we celebrate the birthday of the United States on July 4th we celebrate the Flag on June 14th.  Flag day first originated when a schoolteacher named BJ Cigrand assigned the students in his Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School to observe the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes as what he called then 'Flag Birthday' on June 14th, 1885.
