Gettysburg Pa Celebrates Flag Day - Pa has Close Ties to Flag DayFlag Day is celebrated on June 14th and commemorates the adoption of the flag on the United States. What is amazing that the resolution deeming it so was passed way back in 1777 by the Second Continental Congress. Woodrow Wilson issued the proclamation that officially established June 14th as Flag Day in August of 1949. While Flag is not a federal holiday such as Memorial Day or July 4th, there is one state (and the only one) that has made Flag Day an official State Holiday. My home state of Pennsylvania is that state. Be sure to take time to learn more about Flag Day. Our Flag is a big part of our history, and our future.
