Flag Day 2016

Normally for Flag Day, I would take a picture of a flag flying somewhere.  Sadly, it wasn't particularly windy this morning and I'm not a fan of flags just sort of draping down.  So instead, I leave you with a flag inspired design on an E-2 Hawkeye.  Or least the model of a Hawkeye.

Flag Day is celebrated on June 14 and commemorates the official adoption of the flag of the United States.  It happened on this day in 1777 by a resolution by the 2nd Continental Congress (during the Revolution).  Today also happens to be the birthday of the US Army.  Flag Day didn't officially become established until a proclamation by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916.
