The American flag reminds us of how great America is. It is a symbol throughout the world for freedom and Democracy, as we have always been a nation which supports the civilized West against tyrannical despots.
The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union. Nicknames for the flag include the “Stars and Stripes,” “Old Glory,” and “The Star-Spangled Banner.” England started to tax America and rule us without representation, so our founding fathers took action!
