June 14 is Flag Day! The U.S. Flag is over 225 years old. Sorry, but most people don't get out of school and work for Flag Day. In Pennsylvania though, it is an official state holiday. The U.S. flag has special names: Stars and Stripes, Old Glory, and Star-Spangled Banner. The flag has 13 stripes that represent each of the 13 original colonies and fifty stars: one for each U.S. state.
