American Flag history

The American flag, officially, the Flag of the United States, has 13 horizontal stripes ( 7 red and 6 white alternating) which represent the original 13 colonies, and in the upper corner a rectangular field of blue with 50 white stars representing the states of the union. The origin of the design was a resolution passed by Congress on June 14, 1777. Although Betsy Ross is traditionally given credit for making the first flag, this has not been proven, nor is anyone certain when the first American flag was flown. As new states were added to the Union, they demanded representation. Although it was decided to keep the stripes at 13, it was decided in 1818 to increase the number of stars to represent the number of states. By the time of the Civil War in 1861 there were 34. The 50th star was added in 1960 for Hawaii. By executive order of William Howard Taft in 1912 the exact dimensions and relative proportions were fixed. In 1942 Congress adopted a joint resolution for the proper display of the flag.
