Celebrating Flag Day in Hayward. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress, seeking to promote national pride and unity, adopted the Stars and Stripes as the national standard of the United States. On June 14, 2016, the Hayward City Council adopted the Hayward Centennial Flag as the Flag of Hayward. The design uses the international code of signals flags of “H” for Hayward and “W” for Wisconsin. The left half of the “H” flag is white and the right half is red; the red, white and blue “W” flag is centered on the white section of the “H” flag.
