US Flag Day on Twitter

National Flag Day

National Flag Day of USA

The national flag of any country is an expression of the motherland. Every country has a specified day called Flag Day to honour its national flag, and fly it sky high with respect. In the United States, National Flag Day is celebrated with pride on June 14. It is the day to honour the American Flag that is supposed to be the symbol of strength and unity.

The American Flag that we see today has 13 horizontal alternating red and white stripes that represent the 13 colonies and the white stars are representatives of 50 states. It was created in 1960 after the addition of Hawaii as the 50th state. The Flag has changed designs more frequently than any other flag in the whole world with about 27 different versions of the familiar red, white and blue.

At the same time, the world is celebrating the largest sporting event in the world, FIFA World Cup 2010. I have posted an article – Follow FIFA World Cup on Twitter on June 11, 2010, the day the mega event started.

“Twitter has joined the world cup party, and adding little images (0.56cm x 0.56cm) of soccer balls to #worldcup hash tags and flags to the tags for each participating country like #alg (for Algeria) and #usa (for United States). The cool little trick Twitter is calling hashflags appear to be a hit with users. Any user who tweets with the relevant #tag of a member nation, such as #bra, then a miniature version of Brazil’s flag will appear next to the #tag in his tweets, and a soccer ball will appear next to #worldcup.”

Today, one of my earliest friends on twitter, Dr Shawn Finch, visited my blog and wrote a comment on this article:

Thank you for the flag icons! Very cool!

I wanted to thank her and visited her profile page. To my pleasant surprise, I found her using the cool twitter hashflag for USA in her innovative Flag Day greetings on twitter.

Shawn Finch is a veterinarian and Mom. She works at Banfield, The Pet Hospital of Papillion. She also writes for Omaha.net and Carefresh.

I shall strongly recommend my blog readers to follow her on twitter. Her user name on twitter is @Finch93, please follow her.

This prompted me to explore further, and I made a twitter search for USA #flag day. And I found plenty of Flag Day messages with tiny USA flag.

I found an interesting tweet from Tooele County Democratic Party (@TooeleDems).

Happy Flag Day!

The link in this tweet took me to The National Flag Day Foundation. I am giving below a small introduction about the US National Flag from their home page, for details visit the site.

The National Flag Day Foundation

“Our mission is to carry on the tradition of the first flag day observance. On June 14th, 1885, Bernard J. Cigrand, a 19 year old teacher at Stony Hill School, placed a 10 inch, 38- star flag in a bottle on his desk then assigned essays on the flag and its significance. This observance, commemorated Congresses adoption of the Stars and Stripes as the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. This observance was also the beginning of Cigrand’s long years of fervent and devoted effort to bring about national recognition and observance of Flag Day. The crowning achievement of his life came at age fifty when President Wilson, on May 30, 1916, issued a proclamation calling for a nation wide observance of Flag Day. Then in 1949, President Truman signed an Act Of Congress designating the 14th day of June every year as National Flag Day. On June 14th, 2004, the 108th U.S. Congress voted unanimously on H.R. 662 that Flag Day originated in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin.”

I would end the article with a video posted on YouTube.
