Honor 'Old Glory' on June 14

Rachel Carr, Student Intern

Thursday, June 14, commemorates the 225th birthday of the United States flag.

Flag Day is meant as a day for all Americans to celebrate and show respect for the flag and its designers and makers, as a symbol of the independence and unity of America.

The idea for Flag Day is believed to have originated in 1885 with the help of a school teacher who arranged for his students to celebrate Flag Birthday.
