The United States flag is one of the most well known flags throughout the world. The flag is unique and easy to recognize thanks to the use of three basic colors: blue, red, and white.
The US flag consists of 13 horizontal stripes and a blue rectangle in the left corner with fifty white five-pointed starts. The stripes stand for the original thirteen colonies of the US that became the first states of the Union after rebellion against Britain. The stars represent the fifty states of the United States of America. During ceremonial displays, the flag may be decorated with golden fringe around the perimeter.
The flag is traditionally flown at most public buildings, as well as many private homes. It should be especially displayed on New Year's Day, Inauguration Day, Lincoln's Birthday, Presidents's Day, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Patrion Day, Constitution Day, Columbus Day, Navy Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day and such other days that may be proclaimed by the President of the United States.
The US has flags ranging from the national red, white, and blue flag, to its Army Flag, to its Navy Flag. Whichever flag it is, the creation of each one of them has taken lots of time, artistic dedication, and patriotism.
