Old Glory Displayed For Flag Day

  It was a special day for Old Glory Monday. The American flag was proudly displayed, all over East Texas, on this national Flag Day.

  In Longview the stars and stripes lined the streets next to businesses, and homeowners also displayed their own flags in front yards and on their homes.

  The holiday was established on August 3, 1949 when former President Harry Truman signed an act of Congress, designating June14th of each year as National Flag Day.
