Prepare For Flag Day!
What is Flag Day, and why do we celebrate it?
Flag Day, also called National Flag Day in the United States, is a day honoring the national flag and was observed on June 14. The holiday commemorated 1777 when the United States approved the design for its first national flag.
How to show your patriotism on Flag Day?
1. Display a full-size American flag in front of your house.

This day is part of a more significant patriotic celebration -- Flag Week -- during which police stations, fire departments, and schools are urged to display the flag, and government buildings are required to. Join them by flying the red, white, and blue outside your home.
2. Enjoy a parade
Hundreds of Flag Day parades, concerts, and other events are being held across the country to celebrate the holiday. Check the local news to see any parades or events taking place on June 14. If yes, wear a patriotic t-shirt, or wear an outfit consisting of red, white, and blue colors. And encourage friends and family to show their support by displaying the American flag.
3. Brush up on your history of the American flag.
Some history museums have Flag Day-themed programming and exhibitions to contextualize the holiday's significance. The Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia is debuting a collection of 40 historic 13-star US flags representing the 13 original colonies. The exhibit runs through July 21.
Look into programming at your local museum and educate yourself about the day's cultural significance.
4. Pay your respects
Visit one of the nation's 136 veterans' cemeteries -- or maybe a veterans' memorial or monument -- to commemorate fallen soldiers. Well-known sites include The Prison Ship Martyrs Monument in New York, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery, The American Veterans Disabled For Life Memorial in Washington, and the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
5. Pick your favorite state or alternative flag
With its 13 stripes and 50 stars, the current US flag has been around for more than 50 years.
Think flag history is boring? US state flags have all kinds of quirky and surprising origin stories. Consider the California flag, the symbol of a settlers' revolt in 1846, and Alaska's flag, designed in 1927 by a 13-year-old boy.
