Prior to 1956 the Army was the only armed service without a flag to represent the entire service. Prompted by need to represent the Army in joint service ceremonies, in 1955 Secretary of the Army Wilber Brucker requested a creation of a flag. On June 14,1956, the 181st anniversary of the creation of the Army by the Continental Congress, in Philadelphia at Independence Hall the U.S. Army flag was unfurled to the public.
