Free Patriotic Vintage American Flag Clip Art
This free vintage American flag clip art is obviously perfect for celebrating Flag Day, or Memorial Day or Veterans Day, for that matter.
In case you’re not aware, Flag Day is the anniversary of the official adoption of the American flag by the Marine Committee of the Continental Congress in 1777. Woodrow Wilson proclaimed June 14 as the first official National Flag Day in 1916 but it wasn’t until 1949 that an Act of Congress was signed to formally establish the holiday. Interestingly, though, Flag Day isn’t a given; it’s at the president’s discretion to officially proclaim the observance each year. That is unless you live in Pennsylvania, which is the only state that recognizes it as a legal holiday.
Should you really crave more information about Flag Day, see Title 36 Sec. 110 of the US Code, which is the official statute governing its celebration.
