Flag Day ~ 140th Birthday

US_Flag_Day_poster_1917

In 1777, the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes pattern for the national flag.  This would follow almost one year after the Declaration of Independence and more than a decade before the U.S. Constitution was finalized.

 

 

FLAG TRIVIA:

             *  The stripes of the flag were probably adopted from the flag of the Sons of Liberty, which had 5 red and 4 white stripes. 

*  Originally official U.S. Flags could have stars with 5,6,7,or 8 points.  These stars were scattered or arranged in many designs since each seamstress followed her own ideas and interpretations.

*  The Stars and Stripes forever was first performed in Philadelphia on May 14, 1897.  the composition became the national march of the U.S. in a bill signed into law by President Ronald Reagan on December 11, 1987.
