Flag Day Ceremony

Posted by admin | Bristol Fourth of July Committee


In the United States Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; in August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Join us at the Town Common for the Flag Day Ceremony, the kick-off to our annual Fourth of July Celebration.
