(June 11) This Week we're celebrating. . .  National Flag Week


National Flag Week
By Presidential Proclamation; this week, which includes Flag Day (June 14th),  honors and celebrates our flag, our country, and our heritage.

 …I urge all Americans to observe Flag Day and National Flag Week by flying the Stars and Stripes from their homes and other suitable places. I also call upon the people of the United States to observe with pride and all due ceremony those days from Flag Day through Independence Day, also set aside by the Congress (89 Stat. 211), as a time to honor America, to celebrate our heritage in public gatherings and activities, and to publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.*

*Presidential Proclamation – Flag Day and National Flag Week, 2007
