The national flag of the United States of America, often referred to as the American flag or the U.S. flag, consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the “union”) bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows, where rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternate with rows of five stars.
In addition to 13 horizontal stripes, seven red stripes alternate with six white stripes; the stripes represent the original 13 colonies of the United States, and the stars represent the 50 states of the United States. Furthermore, the flag’s colors have symbolic meanings; red symbolizes hardiness and courage, white signifies purity and innocence, and blue signifies vigilance, perseverance, and justice.
