Though not as widely celebrated as Independence Day, Flag Day--June 14th--is a good opportunity to honor an important symbol of our country and all that is associated with being an American. Many communities host concerts and/or parades to honor the stars and stripes. Flag Day can also be a good chance to for you and your fraternity brothers to stand out and show your fraternity flag as well as let the people in your community know about your fraternity's patriotic feelings. Besides, the girls will love it.
What is Flag Day
June 14th commemorates the day in 1777 that the Continental Congress (the forerunner to our present day Congress) adopted the stars and stripes design for the United States flag. The flag has changed over the years as more states entered the Union, but the basic stars and stripes motif has remained the same.
Though Flag Day is not an official holiday, the grass-roots occasion is a patriotic favorite and a good opportunity to display the stars and stripes, at your fraternity house, outside your apartment or by waving a small, hand-held flag at one of the many parades around the country. What's more, flag-waving is just fun.
