  • Placing flags on the graves of Veterans

  • Recognizing local citizens for their patriotism
  • Organizing flag retirement ceremonies
  • Participating in patriotic events
  • Hosting Celebrating Red, White & Blue® events and displaying American flags at local athletic and community events

Fun Flag Facts

To celebrate Flag Day, here are some interesting facts about the American flag:

  1. The U.S. flag has seen 27 different versions so far, with the number of stars changing with each new state.
  2. The true designer of the first American flag remains a mystery, with conflicting claims attributed to Betsy Ross and Francis Hopkinson.
  3. The U.S. flag was the first flag on the moon, planted by Neil Armstrong. Subsequently, there were five more flags planted during Apollo missions.
