Do you watch Big Bang Theory? If so, you are more than likely familiar with Dr. Sheldon Cooper’s Fun with Flags! Well, this post isn’t quite like an episode of Fun with Flags, and I certainly won’t be posting a video!
However, since today IS Flag Day, I wanted to share a few facts with you.
Flag day is celebrated on June 14th to commemorate the adoption of the United States flag. This happened on June 14, 1777.
Did you know that the colors of flag represent things? White is for purity and innocence, Red for hardiness and valor, and Blue for vigilance, perseverance and justice. I’m sure we were taught that in a history class somewhere along the way, but I didn’t remember it.
Did you know that the number of stripes is intentional? I think we all know that each of the 50 stars represents a state in our union. The stripes alternate white and red with seven red stripes and six white stripes. The stripes represent the original 13 states.
Flag day is also special because it is also the birthday of the United States Army!
God bless the USA!
Thank you for stopping by!
