June 14, 1777, the original United States flag of 13 stars was officially adopted by the Second Continental Congress. It wasn't until 1916 that the then President Woodrow Wilson put forth a proclamation that officially established June 14 as day of commemoration; and not until 1949, when by an act of Congress, was June 14 declared National Flag day. Although Flag Day is not an official federal holiday, all states observe it and most who are patriotic celebrate the day and / or take special homage to the flag.
