Flag Day

June 14 is Flag Day, and with the Fourth of July coming up we will see our flag flying in many places. It took many years for our flag to look the way it does now, as changes in our nation brought changes to the flag. In 1818 Congress made a decision that there would only be 13 stripes in the flag, representing each colony, and there would be a star for every state. In 1912 President Taft decided the stars should be in rows. That is how our flag looks today. So wave it proudly in a parade, or hang it high at your home, as it represents freedom and our great country!
