Best Answer

The Adoption Of Our Flag was officially adopted on June 14, 1777.

Continental Congress adopted the stars and stripes pattern for the National Flag of the United States.

Each color used in the flag symbolized a quality people felt our country displayed or should strive to display. Today these same colors and basic pattern are used, although some minor changes have occurred over time.

White signifies purity and innocence, red signifies hardiness and valor, and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
