As each state joined the United States of America, another star was added. On July 4, 1960, Hawaii was the final star that completed the waving american flag that we know today. The shape of the star chosen to represent each state was a unique decision. Prior to the end of the 18th century, six, seven, and eight pointed stars were more commonplace than the five-pointed star. Some speculate that the five-pointed star was chosen to further separate the United States from Europe. Another theory is that Betsy Ross came up with the five-pointed star because it was easier to do with one snip of the scissors than a six-pointed star. No one knows for sure, but the five-pointed star was a unique decision that allows our flag to be that much more special to Americans.
The 13 stripes on each waving american flag are always seven red and six white. Prior to 1916, there was no consistency about whether the flag had six or seven red stripes. No one knows for sure if there was a reason that seven red stripes were chosen, although some may wonder if it had anything to do with keeping the edges of the flag clean since white shows dirt more easily than red. Not a very patriotic reason, but a very logical answer. The colors on the flag were deliberately chosen to represent a theme that our founding fathers felt was important to the building of our nation. Red stands for courage, hardiness, and bloodshed. Courage because our country is based on the courage of separating from what we once knew, courage of starting over, courage of fighting for our freedom.
Hardiness because our founding fathers believed our country will outlast the land that we came from. And finally, blood shed to honor all those who lost their life for our freedom and our country. White stands for purity and vigilance, purity because our country is independent and is not corrupted by any other country. Vigilance because our country needs to be alert and careful in the choices we make. Blue stands for justice and perseverance, justice because it is the basis of our country, and perseverance because although our nation is young, we will stand strong against all opposition.
