In the United States Flag Day is celebrated on June 14, commemorating the adoption of the flag of the United States, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

 "Inspired by  three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was officially
established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. 
 While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson's proclamation, 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."

On June 14, 1777, Continental Congress adopted the 13-Star flag. The design of the flag has been modified 26 times officially, since 1777.
The 48-star flag design flew for 47 years until the 49-star version became official on July 4, 1959. The 50-star flag was ordered by President Eisenhower on August 21, 1959 and is now the longest official design at 52 years.

All 27 official designs are recognized as an American flag  and can still be flown as a United States Flag today.

Sincerely,
