Salute the Flag: Honoring the American Flag

IMAGE CREDIT: webclipart.about.com

Red, white and blue. Those familiar and often celebrated colors have become entrenched in our society. Whenever you see those colors together, you can’t help but get a feeling of patriotism. The American flag for many is a symbol of freedom and hope. A symbol for what this country stands for and believes. The history of our flag goes all the way back to 1777 when the second continental Congress passed a resolution that adopted our now familiar flag as the official flag of America. However, it was 139 years later when President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that gave our flag its own day, and thus, Flag Day was born. On June 14 of every year, Flag Day is celebrated as a way to commemorate the adoption of the flag that has become a big part of our lives. There are many ways to celebrate Flag Day such as attending parades and cookouts. Whatever your method of celebrating is, we thought we would highlight some of our very own red, white and blue products in honor of this special day.
