Events from History: 14 June 1777

In a move solidifying the symbolism of the American Revolution, the Continental Congress officially adopted the “Stars and Stripes” as the national flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. The design, featuring thirteen alternating red and white stripes and a field of thirteen white stars on a blue canton, honoured the thirteen original colonies and their newfound unity. This historic decision marked the birth of an iconic emblem that continues to represent the United States across the globe.
