Happy Flag Day From XL Country
Sunday, June 14th, is designated as Flag Day in the United States. It is a day set aside to commemorate the Flag Resolution that read in part:
"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.
In 1775, when the American Revolution began, the colonist did not have a united flag. Each regiment actually fought under their own flag. The Flag Resolution would change that, and in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation that established June 14 as Flag Day.
The United States Army also celebrates its birthday on this date, and it is also President Donald Trump's Birthday.
There are many flags that people also choose to fly on this day. The American Flag, of course, is front and center. But some also fly their Thin Blue Line Flags to represent their support for law enforcement, while others display a Red Thin Line Flag to honor firefighters who have been injured or killed in the line of duty.
If you are flying a flag on this flag day, take a picture and post it on our XL Country Facebook page.
