June 14th is a day where we celebrate the red, white and blue! It is a day that we Americans call Flag Day.
The U.S. Flag represents freedom, and has been a symbol of this country's ideals since its early days.
On June 14, 1777 the Continental Congress approved the design of a national flag.
They decreed the first U.S. Flag have 13 stripes, alternate red and white, and that the union be "13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation."
Many honor this day by displaying flags at public buildings and homes. The American flag also goes by other names such as "Old Glory" or "star-spangled banner."
