Our calendar just screamed out “It’s Flag Day!!!” to us in big red letters.
Honestly, though? We have never had any idea what Flag Day was. Is it a celebration of any flag? Does it have to do with the American flag? Should we go through our Facebook newsfeed and finally use the “flag this” button that we never dared click before?!
(By the way, how are we not already friends on Facebook?! Add TasteSpotting!)
It turns out that the Internet is a great way to find these things out, and based on careful research, we’ve learned that June 14th is Flag Day because it is the day that the red, white and blue American flag was adopted.
We’re not sure what one does to celebrate Flag Day other than fly the Stars and Stripes and maybe do your best rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, but we figured, in the spirit of the holiday, we’d make a pretty little grid of red, white and blue foods.
Because even though we love them, we really didn’t need to make yet another flag-shaped cake with strawberries for red stripes and blueberries for stars.
Happy Flag Day!
