Central Texas celebrates Flag Day

WACO, Texas - June 14 is Flag Day, and flags were indeed flying high in Central Texas!

Here are some fun facts about the U.S. flag:

- There is no proof Betsy Ross designed the first American flag. Many historians say Francis Hopkin deserves the credit.

- Our current flag was designed by 17-year-old Robert Heft as a history project when Hawaii and Alaska joined the union. He originally got a B-, but it was later upgraded to an A.

- The official names of the flag's colors are Old Glory red, Old Glory blue and white.

- Five of the six U.S. flags on the moon are still standing.
