July- 14 Flag Day of America

July 14 is celebrating as the Flag Day America.On the same day, the United States Army celebrates its birthday.

Bernard Cigrand, a small-town Wisconsin teacher, originated the idea for an annual flag day, to be celebrated across the country every June 14, in 1885. That year, he led his school in the first formal observance of the holiday.

For more than 200 years, the Stars and Stripes has represented liberty, justice, and the rule of law. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America, and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.

This year, Old Glory has waved over millions of brave Americans fighting the invisible enemy, often at risk to their personal health and well being.
