Today, June 14, is Flag Day in the United States. According to the History Channel, June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution stating that the flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white, and the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation. Today the stripes represent the 13 original colonies and the 50 stars represent the 50 states of the United States of America. Flag Day, 2015, is also the 240th birthday of the U. S. Army. Today, the Colorado Traveling Ducks hope you proudly and properly display the American Flag.
