Happy Flag Day, from our only American dog, and the only dog in our family who can carry or hold a flag, Bailie! Have you ever wondered why we have Flag Day and why it is celebrated? I sure did, so I did some digging and found the answer.
On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed the Flag Resolution which stated: “Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.” Flag Day is the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777. On August 3rd, 1949, President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of every year as Flag Day!
Bailie encourages all Americans to proudly fly, carry, or run with a flag today! America is a wonderful country which can be celebrated with the American Flag! I do apologize if Bailie has broken any flag etiquette, but it is not easy for a dog to carry a flag. She does her best not to drop it and to hold it upright, but sometimes stuff happens.
Happy Flag Day!
