Here is the question :
WHAT STATE RECOGNIZES FLAG DAY AS A STATE HOLIDAY?
Here is the option for the question :
- New York
And, the answer for the the question is :
[STC001023] On June 14, Americans celebrate Flag Day, which commemorates the passing of the Flag Act of 1777, the law that made the American flag the official national flag of the newly formed United States. It is also the day when the United States Army was founded, as it was on June 14 that the first men were enlisted (though two years earlier). It wasn’t until 1949 that Flag Day was officially recognized as a national holiday, despite the fact that the idea for the celebration dates back to the 1800s. Nevertheless, it is not a holiday recognized at the national level, and in reality, Pennsylvania is the only state that celebrates June 14 as a legal holiday. That’s fitting considering that Philadelphia was where the Second Continental Congress met to pass the Flag Act of 1777 and Betsy Ross allegedly sewed the first flag.
