June 14 is the day designated by Congress to commemorate the creation of the ‘Stars and Stripes” that symbolizes our nation. In 1916 President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation calling for a nationwide observance of Flag Day on June 14. It was not until 1949 that Congress made this day a permanent observance by resolving "That the 14th day of June of each year is hereby designated as Flag Day.” The measure was signed into law by President Harry Truman.
