The idea of celebrating the birth of our flag is believed to have started in 1885.
A Wisconsin school teacher is credited for the first “Flag Day” and the idea spread until it was eventually backed up by a proclamation from President Woodrow Wilson in 1916.
Later, in 1949, President Harry Truman signed an act of Congress, designating June 14 of each year as national Flag Day.
