Celebrating for Old Glory on Flag Day

Today is Flag Day, June 14, commemorating the adoption of the flag of the United States. The day was proclaimed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1916 and then made National Flag Day in August of 1949 by Congress. Fun fact, one of the longest running Flag Day parades is held every year in Quincy, MA, starting in 1952.

One of the hidden bonuses on our CD Rom collection are CIA World Fact Book maps and flags. Over 100 country's maps and flags in jpg format. Great for presentations, education and websites
