National Flag Day was observed by many at the Whitley County Courthouse Square Saturday afternoon.
The Columbia City Elks Lodge, Columbia City and Churubusco American Legions, South Whitley VFW, AmVets, Daughters of the American Revolution and Columbia City VFW converged to honor the National Banner in a public ceremony.
National Flag Day is held in recognition of a resolution by the Second Continental Congress, signed June 14, 1777.
