HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OLD GLORY

Happy Flag Day from The Lodge

For 240 years, we've been looking at some version of this beautiful flag. With each addition to our country, the flag has expanded, to encompass the 50-star version that we see today. 

There are several versions of how Old Glory came to be, most including a then-unknown seamstress named Betsy Ross and the colors Red, White, and Blue. This much we know for sure- on June 14, 1777, Congress made it official with the following statement- “Resolved, that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation." Clearly they saw the power of our new nation and looked to the skies to see our future.

Happy Flag Day- hang one, fly one, and say thank you.
