here comes another delight for my collection...a flag card!!! I told you that i have several flags to display...so there are more coming...and i love them as a child loves candies :)
The U.S. flag consists of 13 stripes, alternate red and white, representing the 13 original colonies/states. The canton consists of a blue field containing a white star for every state in the union.
In 1960, a star was added, representing Hawaii bringing the total number of stars to 50. According to President Dwight Eisenhower's Executive Order, the 50-Star flag would become the "official flag of the United States on July 4, 1960."
