Day 166
Flag Day

Today is Flag Day in the United States. This day commemorates the adoption of the United States flag on June 14, 1777.  

According to the National Day Calendar "Since 1777, the design of the flag has been officially modified 26 times.  For 47 years, the 48-star flag was in effect.  In 1959, the 49-star version became official on July 4.  President Eisenhower ordered the 50-star flag on August 21, 1959.  Seventeen-year-old Robert G. Heft of Ohio designed the 50-star American flag.  His was one of the more than 1,500 designs that were submitted to President Dwight D. Eisenhower. "

If you don't live in the U.S., you can still post a photo of your country's flag.

You can make your photo unique by playing around with angles and lighting.
