June 14 is Flag Day in the United States, where we commemorate the adoption of the United States flag, which happened on this day in 1777. Coincidentally, the same resolution of the Second Continental Congress also created the “American Continental Army,” so the United States Army also commemorates their “birthday” on this day. Though not officially a federal holiday, Flag Day was established by an act of Congress in 1949. The longest-running Flag Day parade is right here in Washington state, home of GiftTree, where the city of Fairfield has held an annual parade honoring the American flag since 1910.
This year, celebrate Flag Day or your Army service member by sending them the America the Beautiful bouquet, a gorgeous patriotic blend of white lilies and red roses with an American flag accent… what better way to celebrate?
