Flag Day – Honors the creation of the flag of the United States of America on June 14, 1777. The Stars and Stripes originated as a result of the resolution adopted by the Marine Committee of the Second Continental Congress at Philadelphia.  The resolution read: ““Resolved, that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field representing a new constellation. ”
