About the Flag
"The USA national flag consists of white stars on a blue canton with a field of 13 alternating stripes, 7 red and 6 white. The 50 stars stand for the 50 states of the union, and the 13 stripes stand for the original 13 states.
The 13 Stripes on the American flag represent the 13 original colonies/states of Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Virginia.
There are 7 red stripes alternating with 6 white stripes - red on top and bottom. The stripes are of equal width and run horizontally." (source: finelineflag)
