Flag Day facts: 10 things you didn’t know about the American flag

In honor of Flag Day, we’ve decided to take a break from our normal Flag Day traditions (flagpole-sitting, bobbing for flag-shaped apples, etc.) to take a closer look at Old Glory herself. Not surprisingly, there are a lot of fun facts surrounding the Stars and Stripes — but most of the coolest stuff isn’t found in any of our history books. A lot of it is interesting, some of it is surprising, and the one tidbit about “Gilligan’s Island” is downright haunting. Bone up on your American Flag trivia by clicking here, and use it to impress your friends and neighbors during the weekend’s backyard barbecues!

Happy Flag Day!!!
