What does the U.S. President pro-claim on Flag Day?
According to tradition, the president issues an annual proclamation calling for the display of the flag of the United States on all government buildings and designates the week of June 14 as National Flag Week, requesting all citizens to proudly display the flag throughout the course of Flag Week.
The presidential Flag Day proclamation also inspires the American people to celebrate from Flag Day through Independence Day as a traditional time to honor America by having public gatherings and activities in which we honor our country and publicly recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
