June 14, 2017 The Julian News 7 Flag Day by Bic Montblanc Maybe my view of history and patriotism is because I'm a child of parents who were members of the greatest generation who gave me a link to the early twentieth century and my grandparents who gave me a link to the 19th century. From the perspective of immigrants enduring extreme hardship to come to this country and parents who were given the opportunity to thrive and of course as I get older I'm developing an appreciation of the past that is unique to America. We are unique as Americans because of what we have endured as people, the struggle we have overcome, the fights we have fought even among ourselves and because as a country, we are more diverse than any land on earth. As a result, we celebrate holidays that are uniquely American. Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Presidents Day (celebrating Washington and Lincoln) and Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebrated by most of the country. Another holiday we'll be celebrating this Wednesday is Flag Day. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag by Congress on June 14, 1777 less than a year after the American declaration of independence from Britain. While the celebration has been attributed to many individuals and individualcommunities throughout the country and while it's celebrated in many ways, in Julian the celebration will be a traditional one at the American Legion. Over the course of the year, folks drop their worn out flags into the patriotically painted box on the front porch of the Legion. They are gathered and stored and once or twice a year they are respectfully burned in the parking lot outside the Legion building. Burning is the traditional and proper way of retiring the flag and the American Legion will honor that tradition in a solemn respectful way at 6,p.m. Of course the ceremony is open to the public and parents are encouraged to bring their children for a teachable moment of Americana. After the ceremony the Legion will be your host for hot dogs and snacks. Originally Old Glory had thirteen stars that represented the original thirteen colonies and then states. Throughout our history as states were admitted to the Union additional stars were added. On May 1, 1795 after the admission of Vermont in 1791 and Kentucky in 1792 the official flag was changed to 15 stars and interestingly 15 stripes, the only official flag to have that many stripes. In 1818 the flag was changed to 20 stars to represent the 1 2017 V14"23 PUppy (Let's play songs h e r ttr set au Fa i. e r;ri pe lrYlS a e li ses / iersey ._ [ around a campfire.)
