Flag Day Fun!

imagesSo I was wondering, do other countries celebrate a “flag day”?  Apparently, they do:

In Argentina, Flag Day (or Dia de la Bandera Nacional) is celebrated on June 20 to honor the flag’s creator, Manuel Belgrano.  

Australia celebrates National Flag Day on September 3.  It was only formally proclaimed in 1996.  Several people are credited with designing the Australian flag, including a school boy!

The Flag Day of Romania has been celebrated on June 26 since 1998.  

Haitian Flag Day occurs on May 18.  Even Haitians living outside the country carry the Haitian flag around to commemorate the day.  

So how do you celebrate Flag Day?  Do you celebrate any other countries’ flag days?
