The stars and stripes

American Flag 1
     The American flag of 1777 had 13 stars and 13 stripes to represent the 13 States of the Union.

     In today’s United States flag the 13 white and red stripes represent the original States of the Union; the 50 white stars on a blue background represent the States of today. When a new State is admitted to the Union a star is added to the American flag.
