Flag week begins June 10, 2018 with Flag Day on June 14, 2018

President Donald Trump issued a proclamation Friday making the week beginning June 10, 2018, Flag week and June 14, 2018, Flag Day.

“More than two centuries ago, on June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress formally adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of our new Republic,” the president wrote in the proclamation. “Through the many triumphs and trials of our Nation, our flag has reflected our heritage of liberty and embodied the American virtues of bravery, justice, and loyalty.  Each year, we celebrate Flag Day and National Flag Week to honor our timeless national emblem.”

The proclamation directs officials to display the flag on all federal government buildings this week and urges citizens to do the same on their property.

“As we raise our flag, let us resolve always to cherish it with reverence and eternal gratitude so that the red, white, and blue may forever wave from sea to shining sea,” Trump wrote. “I also encourage the people of the United States to observe with pride and all due ceremony those days from Flag Day through Independence Day, set aside by the Congress (89 Stat. 211), as a time to honor America, to celebrate our heritage in public gatherings and activities, and to publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.”

  1. For ‘everyday patriots’ this is an excellent chance to do something for their country….it’s a teaching moment…a time to talk to our children, grandchildren and even some ‘grown-ups’ about this part of history

    Perhaps give some thought to renewing your own “Pledge of Allegiance”
