The origins of Flag Day first originated in 1885 by BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher in Wisconsin. The day was originally call “Flag Birthday” reflecting the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777. Over 30 years later is was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916 as “Flag Day” and on August 3rd, 1949, President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as “National Flag Day”. We hope you will join us in showing your patriotic pride by displaying your flag and encouraging others to do the same.
