Happy 236th Birthday, American Flag!

USFlag-BetsyRossToday is Flag Day!

On this day in 1777 the United States of America adopted the American flag through the Flag Resolution at the Second Continental Congress: “Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

236 years later, the number of stars has increased to 50. The American flag remains a shining symbol of freedom throughout the world.
