American Flag Day (14/06)

Every year on June 14, Flag Day is celebrated in the United States of America, which Americans love and revere.

On this day, Americans decorate their houses with flags, thereby showing their patriotism. A special burst of "star-banding" was observed in the United States after the infamous events of September 11, 2001.

The Stars and Stripes as the official flag of all the free states of America was approved by the Continental Congress in 1777, at the height of the Revolutionary War. And the idea of celebrating Flag Day every year probably dates back to 1885. When B.J. Seagrand, a schoolteacher, organized it for students in Fredonia, a public school in Wisconsin, to celebrate June 14th (the 108th anniversary of the Stars and Stripes' inauguration) as "Birthday of the Flag." In subsequent years, in numerous articles in magazines and newspapers, in personal letters, Sigrand continued to enthusiastically promote the celebration of June 14 as "Birthday of the Flag" or "Flag Day".
