Friday, June 14th, is Flag Day and the City of Lubbock along with VFW Post 2466, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, and Friends of the Monument of Courage are all teaming up to encourage citizens in Lubbock to display the American flag.

Flag Day commemorates June 14, 1777 when the Continental Congress decided the composition of the nation's flag according to the AP.

“Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that June 14 shall be flag day. President Truman signed it into law.

Lubbock Mayor Tray Payne said the American Flag is a reminder of out ideals as a nation.

“The American Flag reminds us of the ideals upon which our Nation was founded and the values for which it stands,” said Lubbock Mayor Tray Payne. “We honor our flag and recognize all the men and women who served and sacrificed so much to protect everything our flag stands for and inspires."
