Flag Day

Flag Day

Visitors come together on Flag Day to unfurl a giant American flag in the shadows of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, where the first flag was made. The city celebrates the stars and stripes with patriotic activities, celebrations and a naturalization ceremony to swear in new American citizens.
