Flag Day

City workers were out on Court Street Friday morning hanging American flags for Flag Day 2019. Flags are also up in Brusly and Addis along La. Hwy. 1. 

Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

The United States Army also celebrates the U.S. Army birthday on this date; Congress adopted "the American continental army" after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.
