Happy Flag Day

Today is Flag Day, that oft forgotten commemoration of the adoption, in 1777, of our nation’s flag that has the distinct misfortune of falling between 2 much more glamorous holidays; Memorial Day and Independence Day.

While not an official federal holiday, Flag Day was established by proclamation in 1916 by Woodrow Wilson. National Flag Day was established by an act of Congress in 1949.

Most importantly, Flag Day is also my mother’s birthday, so Happy Birthday Mom!
