Wave that flag!
June 13, 2011
Tomorrow is Flag Day in the US! We celebrate Flag Day every year – it’s the anniversary of when we adopted the American flag in 1777. So, this will be the 234th anniversary of old glory! (That’s what some people call our flag.) I know you might not really know what to do with an American flag, so here are some tips if you want to display your flag (which would be awesome!).
Always do your best not to let it touch the ground and when you put it away don’t crumple it up, have someone help you fold it neatly. If you leave it up at night, make sure you have a light on it so it’s not in the dark. And whenever you do the pledge of allegiance or sing the national anthem you can put your hand over your heart to show your respect. Happy Flag Day!
