The national flag of the USA, often referred to as the American flag, consists of thirteen horizontal stripes of red alternating with white (charred in this case), with a blue rectangle in the canton called the union, bearing 50 white stars. Each star represents a state while the 13 stripes represent the thirteen colonies that declared independence from Great Britain and became the first states in the Union. Nicknames for the flag include the “Stars and Stripes”, “Old Glory”, and “The Star-Spangled Banner”.
Lettering, such as name, dates of service, quotes, etc, can be added to the stripes for an additional cost. There are limitations on the lettering so please inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
