In the United States, today is Flag Day. It’s a smaller holiday sandwiched between the patriotic holidays of summer: Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day. No one takes the day off, and many people forget what day it is until they see more American flags flying outside than is usual. But mental_floss dug up the foundations of the holiday, and how it came to be June 14th on our calendar every year.
