June 14 designated as Flag Day

PROCLAMATION from Fred Camillo, First Selectman 

WHEREAS, On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress passed a resolution adopting a flag for our new Nation - the United States of America with the resolution specifying 13 alternating red and white stripes with 13 stars on a blue field; and

WHEREAS, the stars represented the colonies that declared independence, and in the years since, the number has grown to SO states which comprise our great country today; and

WHEREAS, for centuries, mariners looked to the stars to guide them across the seas, just as Americans and people across the globe look to our flag as a guiding symbol of freedom, opportunity, and hope; and

WHEREAS, to commemorate the adoption of our flag, in 1916 President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed June 14 as the official date for Flag Day, and in 1949 the U.S. Congress permanently established the date as National Flag Day; and

WHEREAS, Congress approved a resolution on June 9, 1966 directing the President to issue an annual proclamation designating the week in which June 14 occurs to be National Flag week, calling upon citizens to display the flag during that week, and

NOW, THEREFORE, l, Fred Camillo, FIRST SELECTMAN OF THE TOWN OF GREENWICH, do
hereby proclaim Thursday, June 14, 2022 as
Flag Day

in the Town of Greenwich and urge all citizens to join me in recognizing and displaying our national symbol of freedom.
