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.
