Brief History and Overview of The American Flag


The official flag of the United States of America or commonly referred to as the American Flag is a reflection of this great country and is a symbol of freedom around the world. All American flags share the following features: There are thirteen equal horizontal stripes of alternating red and white. There is a blue rectangle in the upper left hand corner touting fifty small white stars. These stars are five pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of alternating six and fix stars in the alternate rows.

The fifty stars on the flag represent the fifty American states with the thirteen stripes representing the original thirteen colonies. These colonies are the first states of the union which fought the British Crown for independence and freedom. Over the years there have been a few nicknames assigned to the American Flag which include Old Glory, The Star-Spangled Banner and the Stars and Stripes.
