Happy Flag Day!
June 14th is actually Flag Day. The Continental Congress passed a resolution describing the 13 red and white stripes with 13 white stars on a blue field as the flag that would represent the 13 United States. Later both Presidents Woodrow Wilson and Calvin Coolidge issued proclamations designating June 14 as Flag Day.
It was not until 1949 that Congress passed legislation and President Truman signed into law, making it officially Flag Day.
It's not a Federal holiday. No Monday off and the banks are open when it doesn't fall on a Sunday.
i will be celebrating though--cause it is my birthday.
