The 13 stars of the flag represented the 13 new states. There were few public ceremonies honoring the Stars and Stripes until 1877, when, on June 14, it was flown from every government building in honor of the centennial of the adoption of a national flag. In August 1949, Presi- dent Harry S. Truman pro- claimed June 14 as Flag Day. An American flag is not just any piece of cloth. Its red, white aiad blue colors represent more than 200 years of sacrifice and his- tory. For this reason, a flag should never simply be thrown away when it is r~o longer usable as a flag.
