In Honor Of Flag Day - History 101: Old Glory

1777: The First Official U.S. Flag

This 13-Star Flag became the Official Flag of the United States on June 14th, 1777. The June 14th date was later designated by President Woodrow Wilson as Flag Day. In this flag's design, both the stars and stripes represent the thirteen original colonies, which had been created under the Declaration of Independence just one year prior.
