At the SeaCrest, we have a lot to celebrate, including stars and stripes. The American Flag first flew over 240 years ago and there’s a whole day in honor of the beautiful red, white, and blue pattern.
The Continental Congress approved the stars and stripes design of the American flag and adopted it as a national symbol, on June 14, 1777. However, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day. June 14 marks the anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes as ‘Flag Birthday’, or ‘Flag Day’.
