Flag Day

Show your colors! Flag Day is June 14th.

Flag Day commemorates the Flag Resolution passed by the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777.

It's a Grand Old Flag

A design of thirteen stars and thirteen red and white stripes was selected for the United States flag. While "National Flag Day" has been observed for decades, Pennsylvania is the only state to make it an official holiday.

Show Your Colors

This year, do more than fly the flag on the flagpole: display it indoors as well with flag-themed foods. Start off with Blueberry Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream (substitute strawberries for blueberries in the Fast Blueberry Sauce). Make peanut butter and jelly Flag Sandwiches for lunch. Include red, white and blue salads for dinner, and end with a flag cake for dessert. See Decorating a Flag Cake for tips.



"We take the stars from heaven, the red from our mother country, separating it by white stripes, thus showing that we have separated from her, and the white stripes shall go down to posterity representing liberty."

-George Washington
