The Origin of Flag Day

The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America’s birthday,
but the idea of an annual day speci?cally celebrating the Flag is believed to
have ?rst originated in 1885. BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the
pupils in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School, District 6, to observe June
14 (the 108th anniversary of the of?cial adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as
‘Flag Birthday’. In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public
addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically
advocate the observance of June 14 as ‘Flag Birthday’, or ‘Flag Day’.

Three decades of state and local celebrations transpired across the
country, Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was
of?cially 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.
