Today Is Flag Day 2012 [VIDEO]
It may not be the most well known patriotic event of the year but it’s significance cannot be unrecognized. Today, June 14th is Flag Day, a day that we mark the anniversary of the adoption of the “Stars and Stripes” as the official flag of the United States by the Second Continental Congress in 1777. Although it is not an official federal holiday (it is a state holiday in Pennsylvania) Flag Day has a rich and colorful history.
