Calendar Days: United States Flag Day History
The stars and stripes of the American flag are important icons of the United States. The flag led every battle the country has fought, and is so important many Americans pledge their allegiance to it to commemorate their loyalty to their country. The U.S. flag stands proudly on the surface of the moon, in commemoration of the U.S. moon landing in 1969. Because of these and many more reasons, the United States celebrates Flag Day on June 14th every year.
