The United States gained its independence in 1776, but didn’t adopt a flag until almost a year later on June 14, 1777. Adoption of the flag was hardly observed during the century that followed, according to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. It also didn’t become a holiday until President Harry Truman signed it into law in 1949.
