Why Do We Celebrate Flag Day?

Flag Day is celebrated to commemorate the adoption of the American flag by the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. 

President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation in 1916 establishing June 14 as Flag Day, and it became a national holiday (but not a federal holiday) in August of 1949.    

The week of June 14 is designated as National Flag Week.
