Flag Day at the Museum of the American Revolution

On June 14, 1777, Congress passed the first Flag Act, adopting the 13-star flag as the official flag of the new United States. Join us at the Museum of the American Revolution on Flag Day, Wednesday June 14, to learn about flags of “all kinds of colours” from the Revolutionary era with activities for the whole family, including sewing demonstrations, in-gallery talks, a create-your-own flag activity, and more. Throughout the weekend, the Museum will be giving away free handheld Washington standard flags to guests, and be sure to stop by our newest special exhibition, Black Founders: The Forten Family of Philadelphia, open daily from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m.
