With this flag, 327.16 million American Citizens are represented behind it. This flag stands for everything that is American and the various rights behind it as well. On June 14th, 1777, this famous symbol was born into existence. It may not look the same as today’s flag, but it represented the Americas during the time of the pursuit of independence. To wave this flag, a symbol of our country, you are representing liberty, justice, and humanity. The flag's thirteen stripes alternating red and white, with a union of thirteen white stars in a field of blue, represented a new constellation, a new nation dedicated to the personal and religious liberty of mankind. Today, fifty stars represent union, one for each of the fifty states. The blue stripes in the flag stand for heaven, loyalty, and faith. The red stripes symbolize fearless courage and integrity of Americans. Lastly, the white stripes stand for liberty and justice.
