GOSHEN — While the flag gets few days off from proudly flying over countless homes and buildings across the country, it gets its due on June 14 every year for Flag Day.

According to AmericanFlags.com, Flag Day was created to commemorate the adoption of the flag by Congress in 1777. President Woodrow Wilson made it a recognized day in 1916.
