Flag Day is a day while all Americans celebrate the flag by awarding admiration for the flag and its makers and its designers. One of the key symbols of the United States of America is the flag. The original U.S. flag was certified by Congress on Saturday, June 14, 1777. It had 13 stripes - 7 red and 6 white - that stand for the original 13 colonies. There were 13 white stars in a blue pasture representing a new constellation.
Since 1777, there have been unusual versions of the flag that have been adopted. The red and white stripes by blue collection have remained the similar. Each state in the union is represented by a 5 tip star. The number of stars has changed as states united the union. There are at present 50 states that belong to the United States of America.
