June 14 is Flag Day. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress. However, Flag Day is not an official federal holiday. The longest-running Flag Day parade is held annually in Quincy, Massachusetts, which began 1952.
