Americans show loyalty and respect to the flag everyday, whether we are singing the National Anthem at a sporting event or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. But June 14th is a national holiday, Flag Day, a day that honors the Star Spangled Banner. In commemoration of the adoption in 1777 of the official United States flag.
In 1949, President Harry Truman, signed the legislation making June 14th the official, annual Flag Day.
I took this photo while standing in Anderson Gardens in Litchfield, looking at the long row of flags waving so proudly in the slight breeze at the Lake Ripley Memorial Cementary. What a beautiful sight!
My name is ‘Old Glory’
Long may I wave
o’er the land of the free
and the home of the brave!
Until next time with more Sweet Conclusions …
