On June 14, 1777, the flag of the United States was adopted, which is of course we observe every year on this day by displaying the American flag.
The DNC apparently couldn’t find a picture of a U.S. flag:

Does anybody know what flag or banner that is? I did a search and it was taken at an Obama campaign event (of course) in Davenport, Iowa in 2012. But I’m trying to pin down exactly what it is.
I guess what should most surprise me is that the picture doesn’t have Obama in it.
The RNC did much better:
Today and every day we are proud to honor our flag & the freedom it represents. Happy Flag Day. pic.twitter.com/OzGF5RWQ1M
