National Flag Day will be observed with a celebration ceremony held on the north lawn of the Whitley County Courthouse at noon Saturday.

National Flag Day is held in recognition of a resolution by the Second Continental Congress, signed June 14, 1777, stating that “the flag of the U.S. be 13 stripes, alternate red and white” and that “the union by 13 stars, white on a blue field, representing a new constellation.”

Columbia City Elks Lodge will be joined by the South Whitley VFW, AmVets, Daughters of the American Revolution and Columbia City VFW to honor the National Banner.

This is a public ceremony and all are invited to attend to show support of the American Flag.
