FLAG DAY, JUNE 14, 2012

Old Glory was adopted as the flag of the United States 235 years ago today on June 14, 1777 by a resolution  of the Second Continental Congress. As George M. Cohan wrote:

You're a grand old flag,

You're a high flying flag

And forever in peace may you wave.

You're the emblem of

The land I love.

The home of the free and the brave.

Ev'ry heart beats true

'neath the Red, White and Blue,

Where there's never a boast or brag.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

Keep your eye on the grand old flag
