Probably everyone knows how the flag of The United States of America looks like… There are several reasons, first of all, the USA is one of the most powerful and influential countries in the modern world, and secondly the US flag is a brand, because it’s image is used everywhere it possible (for example, on products, on goods and on television). Also we think all want to have such symbol in their house, so it may be USA flag wall clock!
But do you know that this flag was not always the same as now? For the first time, the American flag was adopted by the Congress of the USA on April 4 in 1818 and looked with 13 stripes and 13 stars on it. On the same day, it was confirmed that the number of stars is the number of states of America and they will vary according to the proclamation of new states on 4 of July of each year, if there is such a need.
The USA flag is not just a picture, it reflects some historical facts, and also takes into account the generally accepted meaning of colors (red, white, blue). Stars on the American flag, as many as the states – 50 (at this time, since history shows that the number of states in America has constantly changed and may change again). Meanwhile, stripes are not added and cleaned under any conditions. Blue is a color of diligence and justice. The red color – the color of valiant and brave, white – embodies purity and innocence.
Let’s look what denotes stripes, stars and their colors on the state flag of the meridian. The stars are located on a blue rectangle – it means the Union. 13 stars represent 13 British colonies that have formed an independent state. Of these 13 stripes, 6 stripes are white and 7 – red. Meanwhile, stripes are not added and cleaned under any conditions.The last star on the American flag was added in the July of 1960 in honor of the new state of Hawaii. The previous star was added with the acquisition of the status of the state of Alaska.Meanwhile, strips are not added and cleaned under any conditions.
