Antique American Flags
On June 14, Americans celebrate the adoption of the
first national flag. Also known as the "Stars and Stripes" or "Old
Glory," the first American flag was approved by the Continental Congress
on June 14, 1777. In 1818, after 5 more states joined the Union,
Congress passed legislation fixing the number of stripes at 13 and
requiring that the number of stars equal the number of states.
