Which U.S. president first issued a proclamation that June 14 would be a national Flag Day?


Woodrow Wilson




How much does the U.S. love its flag? We give it its own birthday! Flag Day, which is also known as ‘Flag Birthday,’ has been a holiday since Wilson proclaimed it in 1916, though, it wouldn’t become officially designated until Truman. Still, it won’t surprise you to know that love for the flag existed long before then, with communities across the country throwing their own parties to celebrate.
