The Origins of Flag Day


June 14th is Flag Day! And on this day, we commemorate the adoption of the flag of the United States. The flag was officially adopted June 14, 1777. The decision came to be as part of the Second Constitutional Congress. Ever wondered what the flag specifically stands for? You’ll be intrigued to know that the flag of the United States has thirteen stripes, alternate red and white to represent our 13 original colonies; that the union used to be thirteen stars but has since changed to the 50 stars we know today, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.

We finally made it! It is the end of the year and 2022 is fast approaching. A lot has happened in 2020 and 2021. We thought it would be the perfect time to look back and highlight some of the challenges as well as the victories that we have had over the past 24 months. The industry has been shaky to say the least. Dealerships all over the country have had inventory shortages because of a larger chip shortage that has been affecting major car manufacturers, costing the industry a crazy 210 billion dollars in 2021.

From a retail standpoint, the aesthetic catch of packaged goods is critical for the appeal to the functional and artistic needs of buyers. Custom decorations such as bows are the cherries you’d want to put on top for that added flair that so many goods are looking for, but have you ever considered why?
