Flag Day

Flag Day

June 14

From star-spangled banners to five-star generals, the National Constitution Center and our partners in the historic district celebrate the shared birthday of two of our country’s greatest institutions—the American flag and the U.S. Army.

Special events on Independence Mall include flag raising ceremonies, a swearing-in of Army recruits, displays and demonstrations of U.S. Army equipment, and a moving naturalization ceremony. Most events will be outdoors and free to the public; no reservations are required.
