Flag Day Facts & Links

Thursday, June 14 will be Flag Day in the United States.

The U.S. Flag is a symbol for all Americans.

I’m old enough to recall when Republican George H.W. Bush claimed that his opponent in the 1988 presidential race, Mike Dukakis, did not want to pledge allegiance to the flag.

The suggestion that the flag was more the symbol of one specific political party or political viewpoint was repulsive.

Yet for all the calls for patriotism we’ve heard from conservatives over the years, it was far-right Texas Republican Texas Governor Rick Perry who suggested that Texas might have reason to leave the federal union.

Here is information on Flag Day from USFlag.org.

From that link—

“The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America’s birthday, but the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885. BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the pupils in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School, District 6, to observe June 14 (the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as ‘Flag Birthday’. In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically advocate the observance of June 14 as ‘Flag Birthday’, or ‘Flag Day’.”

Happy Flag Day To All People In All Nations–Flag Day Post # 1

It is June 14. June 14 is Flag Day in the United States.

Above is a North American flag designed by an Alex Covarrubias of Monterrey, Mexico.

You got it you right-wing crazies—I’m running this flag because all us liberals want the United Nations to come and force the United States to merge our borders with Canada and Mexico.

Though as I recall, it has been far right-wing Texas Governor Rick Perry who has actually discussed the treason of Texas leaving the union.

Happy Flag Day to all people all over the world. All people matter in all nations of the Earth.

Here is some history of Flag Day in the United States.

Here is my other Flag Day post.
