Our mission is to carry on the tradition of the first Flag Day celebration. Our goal is to teach Americanism and the lessons of our great Flag and country by enlisting the help of 4H groups, VFW chapters, Scouts, and other patriots.
FLAG DAY 2020
The National Flag Day Foundation has determined that there will not be a National Flag Day Foundation organized program, parade, family day, or other activities at the Americanism Center on June 14, 2020. While this was an extremely difficult decision, it is the right decision and sometimes doing what is right is not easy.
While the formal National Flag Day Foundation observance will not be taking place, we encourage you to observe what the flag means to you on her birthday. We would like to emphasize that Flag Day, a national holiday, will remain even though the National Flag Day Foundation will not be observing it in the traditional manner. The National Flag Day Foundation will be presenting an online program honoring all active military, veterans, and the American Flag. We encourage you to observe Flag Day with the people that you love.
It is a long-standing tradition of the National Flag Day Foundation to honor a group of outstanding Americans each year, and we are so excited to see everyone in person at Flag Day 2021 when we will be honoring those that honor our veterans—Honor Flight Network Volunteers.
This year’s Flag Day program will be available on the National Flag Foundation Facebook page, website, youtube, and other online sources on June 14, 2020. More information will be available here as June 14 approaches. We look forward to seeing everyone in person for Flag Day 2021! Until then, this great country will persevere as it has so many times before.
Stay safe, God Bless America, and God Bless You,
The National Flag Day Foundation
The “Stars and Stripes” was designated the national symbol of the United States of America by congress on June 14, 1777-the fifth item on that day's agenda. It was resolved in the Journal of the Continental Congress “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 1885, a school teacher named Bernard J. Cigrand encouraged his students to reflect on the real meaning and majesty of this symbol.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
