June 14th is Flag Day, the anniversary of the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day in 1916, and on August 3, 1949, Congress established June 14 as National Flag Day, although it was not made an official federal holiday. The U.S. patent collection provides a number of suggestions of ways to display your flag:

U.S. Patent No. 1,571,581, issued February 2, 1926 discloses a Holder for Flags or the Like.

U.S. Patent No. 1,374,921, issued April 19, 1921, discloses a Mechanically Waved Flag.

.S. Patent No. D22035, issued December 6, 1892, discloses a Handle for Spoon with a flag motif.

However you decide to display the flag today, have a great day.
