waving "Old Glory" !

On June 14th each year, our nation celebrates Flag Day — the date in 1777 that the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes to fly high as a symbol of the United States. The day will mark the 233rd anniversary of Old Glory and those who have had a hand in fortifying its overpowering symbolism.

The first flag featured 13 white stars in a circle on a field of blue with 13 red and white stripes and is often attributed to Philadelphia seamstress Betty Ross, the official flag maker for the Pennsylvania Navy.
