Banner for Flag Day


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."



Historical U.S. Flags

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.

The U.S. Flag Code
The United States Code is the official compilation of the Federal laws of a general and permanent nature that are currently in force. Each Title is divided into Sections, and then subtitles, chapters, sub-chapters, parts, sub-parts, or divisions. Titles may also have appendices which may be divided into sections, rules and/or forms.    
So it is not surprising that the US Flag Code is difficult to maneuver.

The U.S. Congress called for a clarifying interpretation of the code and in 2008 the Congressional Research Service provided the document linked here.   

US Flag Code

We use this most recent clarification on the US Flag Code dated APRIL 2008, by the Congressional Research Service,
Report for Congress
The United States Flag: Federal Law Relating to Display and Associated Questions, both Title 4 and Title 36.

The Congressional Report on the US Flag Code also contains the most recent addition to the US Flag Code,  P.L. 109-243,  

"The Freedom to Display the American Flag Act of 2005"

which addresses   

"Restrictions on Display of the Flag by 

Real Estate Associations".
