Flag Day!



HAPPY FLAG DAY!!!  Did you know that on June 14, 1777 the Continental Congress of the Stars and Stripes adopted the Stars and Strips as the official flag of the United States (U.S.)?  That's true!  Consequently, a law was enacted that designated today as Flag Day.  

Flag Day is a day that the President of the U.S. calls on U.S. Government officials to display the flag of the U.S. on all government buildings, and urges people of the U.S. to observe June 14 as Flag Day to celebrate the anniversary of the adoption of our official flag. 

This day is important to my family as it also is my late Dad's birthday.  He LOVED the American Flag, and displayed it everywhere he could as well as purchased anything that had the flag on it.  This card is in celebration of both special events.
Does my flag look like it's waving in the wind like the one above?  I meant for it to. 
God bless the United States of America, and may we look upon our flag in a special way today.


God's Blessings
