Happy Flag Day: The Pledge of Allegiance

American Flag and National Bird

Happy Flag Day!

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”

A Baptist minister named Francis Bellamy wrote the original Pledge in August 1892. President Truman Signed an Act of Congress, designating June 14 as National Flag Day. The Pledge should be represented by standing at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart or with the military salute for military personnel.
