Happy Flag Day, Michigan!

June 14th was designated Flag Day back in the era of Woodrow Wilson who proclaimed it in 1916. Today, in Michigan, Romeo is having a Flag Day Celebration with flag waving and patriotic music. In Dearborn, they have their annual burning of tattered US flags. Did you know that the designer of the 50 star flag, Robert Heft, was born in Saginaw? At Birch Run, hundreds gather to recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem. There'll be a B-17 flyover in Adrian with a ceremonial flag raising. Celebrations are everywhere! Thanks, Howard Wright III, for the above photo taken in Pontiac.
