June 14. What’s the significance of this day? For me, it’s my mother’s birthday. Aside from celebrating my mother’s birthday, every year on June 14, Americans celebrate Flag Day. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the United States Flag, which happened by resolution on the Second Continental Congress in 1777.
What will the Full-time UST MBA program be doing to celebrate such a significant day? Well, we’ll be ordering five new flags. You see, every year our Full-time MBA Student Commons is filled with flags representing the diversity from our International student population. Flags from Brazil, Germany, the Ivory Coast and Uzbekistan have adorned our walls. In fact we currently have 26 different countries represented. This year, we will be adding, France, Ireland, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam to the mix.
Please join us in celebrating Flag Day by honoring this day by displaying the American flag at your home and/or workplace.
