Our flag is a very special flag, it shows that we are American. It has 13 stripes and fifty stars. Along time ago people have only discovered 13 states. So they made a flag that had 13 stripes and 13 stars. As they adopted new states, they kept making new flags. For every state they adopted they added a star. Soon enough there were 50 stars on the flag. The flag still had 13 stripes. It stayed that way for the original 13 states.
