CHAPTER 337 - STATE OF DELAWARE - EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, we must try more than ever before to promote national unity which will make our country more secure and invincible in a world that has gone mad with national and religious intolerance, aggression and greed, strife and violence; and

THEREFORE, in accordance with legislative act passed by the 107th General Assembly in 1937, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of Delaware, urge that we express our faith in and devotion to our American institutions and show our love for this great country of ours by observing

FLAG WEEK

June 8-14, 1940

and request the display of the American Flag on state and public buildings, at our homes, churches, schools and colleges, and urge patriotic societies, clubs and other organizations, wherever possible, to plan suitable programs so that public recognition can be given to this important occasion, and to strengthen our determination to make our country greater by loyal service and living with each succeeding generation.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of this State to be affixed this Fifth day of June in the year of our Lord One Thousand Nine Hundred and Forty, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the One Hundred and Sixty-Fourth.
