WASHINGTON (AP) — The National Museum of American History in Washington is celebrating Flag Day by hosting a naturalization ceremony for 20 people.

Tuesday’s ceremony is being held in the museum’s Flag Hall, a space in front of the gallery that holds the American flag that inspired “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The 20 participants from 12 countries will take an oath of allegiance, the conclusion of the process to become a naturalized U.S. citizen.
