Show your American pride!

We are proud to be Americans in our office. We understand the sacrifices our soldiers make every day to ensure we are the greatest country in the world.

On this day 245 years ago, the Second Continental Congress changed the appearance of the United States flag because the original was too similar to the British flag. George Washington decided that wasn’t a good confidence-builder for the revolutionary effort, so he wanted a new symbol of freedom.

The new “flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white and that the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

Over 100 years later, in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson officially established June 14 as Flag Day!

So, what do we do to show our American pride at PGT? Line flags all up our walkway to our main entrance for everyone to see.

Happy Flag Day, Americans!
