FRANCIS HOPKINSON. BELIEVED TO BE FLAG DESIGNER.
As I made my usual afternoon rounds on Thursday, one of the dark brown Mexican women I know was wearing an American flag necklace, earings, and a hat decorated with a red, white, and blue motif.
When I mentioned her look, she told me it was flag day. This middle-aged Mexican woman also exclaimed, “I’m a proud American.”
It is a mistake to stereotype everyone. I mentioned that Thursday was also Donald Trump’s birthday and she knew that too. I suspect she’s a Trump supporter, but I didn’t ask.
Anyway, to celebrate Flag Day, Fox News put together 10 facts about the flag.
Excerpt from Fox News
#7. Flag Day isn’t technically a federal holiday, and it’s not a state holiday outside of Pennsylvania and New York. Furthermore, New York’s official observance of Flag Day isn’t June 14 (when it’s commonly celebrated), but rather the second Sunday in June.
President Trump took note as well.
