National Flag Day
June 14, 2015
On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress replaced the British symbols of the Grand Union flag with a new design featuring 13 white stars in a circle on a field of blue and 13 red and white stripes – one for each state.
The number of stars increased as the new states were established.
In August of 1949, President Harry Truman signed a legislation proclaiming June 14th as Flag Day.
In 1966, Congress requested that the President of the United States issue a proclamation each year designating that the week in which June 14th occurs is National Flag Week.
Star Wars Day is an unofficial secular holiday on May 4th which celebrates the Star Wars franchise. Fans all around the world celebrate the franchise which has grown to more than just books and movies.
Here at the Auburn Public Library we have stickers and book marks to give away to any Star Wars fan!
If you’re really wanting to celebrate, put on a Darth Vader mask and submit a picture to our Facebook page in support of National Star Wars Day.
May the 4th be with you!
