Governor Cooper Declares June 14 as Flag Day

Press Release:

    RALEIGH, N.C.     By official proclamation, Governor Roy Cooper declared June 14, 2021 as Flag Day. This national day of observance recognizes the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 and pays homage to this symbol of democracy and freedom that serves as a beacon for all Americans. All North Carolinians are encouraged to display the US flag to honor our country, history, servicemembers and veterans of the US Armed Forces.

    This year marks the 244th anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777, a nationally observed event proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. In 1949, US Congress designated June 14 as National Flag Day, a day that also commemorates the birthday of the US Army.

    Today, Flag Day is celebrated with parades, essay contests, ceremonies, and picnics sponsored by veterans' groups, schools and other organizations to recognize the traditions, history, pride and respect that Old Glory represents. At 1 pm today, the NC Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, the Association of the US Army (Braxton Bragg Chapter), Fort Bragg, the City of Fayetteville and Cumberland County are hosting a cake cutting ceremony at Segra Stadium to celebrate the US Army's 246th birthday.

With Roy Cooper, you always wonder which flag he means - the rainbow flag, the ANTIFA flag, or the hammer and sickle red flag all come to mind with Comrade Cooper.
