USA

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 :)
I actually didnt expect this one...ive arranged for another card, but Asako was more than kind and generous to send me both cards!! Im so so so so so endlessly thankful for that thoughfullness!!

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."
