Stars and Stripes: On This Day In History

“On June 14, 1877, the first Flag Day observance was held on the 100th anniversary of the adoption of the Stars and Stripes”…


…”During the America Revolution, the Continental Congress¬†adopts a resolution stating that “the flag of the United States be thirteen alternate stripes red and white” and that “the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.” The national flag, which became known as the “Stars and Stripes,” was based on the “Grand Union” flag, a banner carried by the Continental Army in 1776 that also consisted of 13 red and white stripes.”¬†–
