Flag Day

The “Stars and Stripes”, the official National symbol of the United States of America was authorized by congress on that Saturday of June 14, 1777.

In Waubeka, Wisconsin, in 1885 Bernard John Cigrand, a nineteen year old school teacher in a one room school, had his students write essays on what the flag meant to them. He called June 14th the flag’s birthday. Stony Hill School is now a historical site. From that day on Cigrand dedicated himself to inspire his students and all Americans, in the real meaning and majesty of our flag.
