On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress approved the design of a national flag. Few things have witnessed American history as up close as the Stars and Stripes. From the birth of the nation, to our darkest and brightest moments, the flag has been there. On #FlagDay, we want to take a moment to look back at some of these events. Learn about the history and design of our flag and check back throughout the day as we share iconic images of our flag throughout history: http://go.usa.gov/3PFwm Photo from the U.S. Navy.
