Since it's beginning, Americans have honored the day by displaying their stars and stripes at their homes, businesses, in parades, and through events/celebrations.

Congress drafted legislation which was later signed into law by President Harry Truman on 1949 designating the day. The legislation also calls for the current president of the United State of America to issue a flag day proclamation every year.
