Flags will be flapping in a warm stiff breeze today as the United States celebrates Flag Day.

Flag day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on this day in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

The United States Army also celebrates the Army Birthday on this date; Congress adopted the American continental army after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.
