I visit a lot of locations around the state and it’s always nice to see the red white a blue flag of the USA proudly flying on a flag pole. I took this photo at Fort Wilkins State Park at the tip of the Keweenaw Peninsula. I have visited it a few times and never noticed it, but I got to looking closely at the photo. The U.S. flag seemed a little different. I counted up the stars and it only has 26 of them. Fort Wilkins was built in 1844 and back then the official American flag only had 26 stars. The historic design from when the fort was constructed proudly flies over the fort today.
I figured I would post this pic today because it is June 14th which is Flag Day. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777. The current flag was designed by a Michigan born man and you can read my post about it HERE
