Celebrate Flag Day in Ellicott City!

The Betsy Ross Stars and Stripes

On Friday, June 14th, Waverly OEC businesses will be giving away free flag lapel pins, one per customer, while supplies last.

Betsy Ross designed the Stars and Stripes in 1814, right here in Maryland. It flew over Fort McHenry during the British Bombardment of Baltimore in September of that year. The United States withstood the British bombardment, a success that smoothed the way for our ultimate victory in the War of 1812.

So come early, get your pin, and wear it proudly for Flag Day.
