Flag facts:

Flag day is June 14, established to commemorate the day in 1777 when our flag was officially adopted.

Today’s official design:  Thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red alternating with white; the blue rectangle called the “union” has fifty white five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset rows of six and five stars.

When displayed either horizontally or vertically, the union or blue field, should be to the observer’s left, like this: vertical flaghoriz flag

Variations: the earliest flags were not standardized in design but contained 13 stripes and 13 stars for the original colonies. Different flag makers arranged the stars in different formations, and type of star could vary.  In 1795, the number of stars and stripes increased to 15 when Vermont and Kentucky became states of the Union. It is this version that inspired Francis Scott Key to write The Star Spangled Banner.

Subsequent state additions did not affect the number of stars and stripes. But in 1818 Congress passed a plan to change the number of stars to twenty, and continue adding a star when a new state entered the Union. The number of stripes was reduced to 13 to honor the original 13 colonies.

The arrangement of stars varied in both circular and row patterns throughout the 1800s.  In 1912 the 48-star flag became the first standardized design. Similar to our current flag, it flew for 47 years until the 49-star and 50-star versions were created with the addition of Alaska and Hawaii in 1959 and 1960.

Flag etiquette: The flag may be flown at night only if properly illuminated. The flag should be flown at half-staff on certain days such as Memorial Day; in mourning of the death of designated government leaders; or when directed by the President. Damaged or tattered flags should be destroyed in a dignified manner (contact a local VFW or scouting group for more information).
