Among so much change, Flag Day 2020 will be different as we celebrate cultural diversity surrounded by protest and affirmations of unity.

When we celebrate the Star Spangled Banner, this year, we’ll see it through a lens we’ve never had before. With astonishing strength, Americans are pushing hard for social equality and public respect while a brutal pandemic and a recession might knock any other culture off its feet.
In 2020, Americans celebrate Flag Day on June 14th.
So, how did that star spangled banner inspire our national anthem anyway?
Well, Francis Scott Key was held captive on a British vessel in Baltimore Harbor. He wrote about what he saw, and some one else fixed it up with a drinking song.
It’s never too late.
Long may it wave.
