Flag Day: Red, White and Blue

June 14th was Flag Day in the United States. It was back in 1777 that the powers that be decided we needed our own flag so a resolution was passed. The colors Red, White and Blue were seen all over New York on Tuesday.

In the top image, Brooklyn Borough Hall is bathed in the patriotic light. This landmark has been around since 1834.

In the second shot, the All American image of Babe Ruth of the Yankees is pictured overlooking fans on another rainy day at Yankee Stadium. Thanks to the guy in the blue cap, I'm counting this photo in my Flag Day theme.

And of course, The Empire State Building was the picture of Americana in observance of Flag Day. Only in Pennsylvania is it a state holiday. But Wisconsin is the official birthplace of Flag Day.
