June 14 is National Flag Day. National Flag Day was first established in 1916 by a presidential proclamation from President Woodrow Wilson. Why did he choose June 14, simply because the United States flag was born on June 14, 1777. Our flag has 13 horizontal red and white stripes and 50 stars, which represent the 50 states.
