Hats Off to Flag Day


“Flag Day falls within National Flag Week, a time when Americans reflect on the foundations of the nation’s freedom. The flag of the United States represents freedom and has been an enduring symbol of the country’s ideals since its early days. During both events, Americans also remember their loyalty to the nation, reaffirm their belief in liberty and justice, and observe the nation’s unity”

Oh Say Can You See?

It’s Flag Day, one of those commemorations that sometimes gets lost in the patriotic shuffle between Memorial Day and July 4th. Although a Flag Day holiday hasn’t been an official national observance very long (only since 1949), celebrations of the flag’s birthday June 14 1777 have been held since 1885. Gloucester really steps it up when it comes to flying the Ole Stars and Stripes all year round.
