On June 14th, 1777 , the Marine Committee of the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution declaring “that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.” The flag design was based on the “Grand Union” flag, a banner carried by the Continental Army in 1776.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day. Today we still celebrate this historical declaration mid-June each year through both National Flag Week and National Flag Day.
