Late for me to remind you, if you didn’t, but January 3 is Alaska’s Statehood Day. Alaskans should have flown their U.S. flags today in commemoration.
Of course, some people would like to fly their state flags, too — makes more sense, some say. I don’t argue, but I note that very rarely do I come across some household that has a state flag. Most homes have a U.S. flag.
Alaska’s flag is a work of art, though, and many Alaskans have one. Did you fly it today, if you have one?
- Dates to fly the flag in January (this is for 2017, but it’s the same dates in 2018)
- Utah statehood day is January 4, tomorrow; Beehive Staters, are you ready?
- More on Alaskan statehood, and the design of its flag, from a post last year
