For the past 27 years, Catholic Life Insurance has hosted a “Flag Day Celebration” event at our Home Office Building in San Antonio, Texas, commemorating the U.S. Flag’s birthday. This event is free to the public and promotes patriotism in the community through the celebration of a great American symbol.
As a safety and precaution to the community and our members, Catholic Life Insurance has canceled the old fashioned flag-raising ceremony to honor the 243rd anniversary of the American Flag that was to take place on Sunday, June 14, 2020, at the Home Office Building.
In replacement of the in-person event, we will now be holding a Facebook Event. At 9:30 AM on Sunday, June 14, 2020, and will be posting a short video of last year’s event to honor our sacred flag. There will also be prize giveaways to active participants of the Facebook Event!

This year marked the 71st anniversary of the Act of Congress establishing June 14 as National Flag Day. Flag Day commemorates the adoption of the first United States Flag by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The festivities are designed to increase awareness of the Flag and to reinforce the principles of liberty and justice as defined in the Pledge of Allegiance.
