Under the U.S. Flag Code, Missourians are encouraged to fly the Stars and Stripes on August 10 to honor Missouri’s entering the union in 1821 as the 24th state.
Does Missouri celebrate this event at all? I’m not finding much on celebrations in 2015. Perhaps the state is preoccupied with other events.
Surely Missourians know the date. Plans for the bicentennial in 2021 promise a huge celebration then.
I can find a record of a modest celebration of statehood in 2014.
If you find news of any activities relating to the commemoration of Missouri statehood in 2015, please let us know in comments.
With or without fanfare, Missourians, you may fly your flags to day to honor statehood.
