Our first thought of american flag
Before we had the american flag we would use the good old british flag, but close to our independence we needed our own symbol of america. that is when our american flag had 13 stars in a round shape for the 13 colonies, but it wasn't always the 13 stared flag. In 1777 we had a flag were the stars look like this...
The Revolutionary War ended in 1781
many more flags were created after the war ended until 1960 when our 50 stared flag got placed as the American flag.
