Wednesday is Uncle Sam day and in honor of that, we found these patriotic ladies flashing their love of the stars and stripes in red, white and blue bikinis.

The day celebrates the birth of Samuel Wilson — born September 13, 1766 — credited with creating the iconic image and nickname for the United States government. (RELATED: With End Of Summer Approaching, Take A Look Back At The Hottest Bikini Pics [SLIDESHOW])

“Sam Wilson, a meatpacker from New York, supplied barrels of meat to soldiers during the war of 1812,” a description about the day from National Calendar Day reads. “To identify the meat for shipment, Wilson prominently stamped “U.S.” on the barrels.  It wasn’t long before the soldiers dubbed the grub a delivery from Uncle Sam.  As such nicknames tend to do, its popularity spread.”

So, we’ve done all the work for you and found these lovely ladies waving the American flag at the beach and everywhere else that represents the beauty of this great country.
