American flag

It’s a flag and symbol instantly known around the world; here at home it’s known by names such

The American national flag has an exact set of specifications as to how it is used, how and when
it is displayed, how it is folded when not in use, even how it is honorably destroyed when soiled

The design concept of the modern flag was first adopted June 14, 1777, but at the time with a
field of 13 stars only, representing the original 13 colonies/states. Through the years, as each

48 star flag which saw service during World War II, and was used for 47 years.
