A reader recently reminded me that today is Flag Day. On this date in 1777 the Second Continental Congress adopted the stars and stripes as our national flag. President Woodrow Wilson issued the first proclamation (in 1916) that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. Congress followed suit in August, 1949 to set aside today as National Flag Day.
