What Does the American Flag Mean to Me Freedom Justice History The flag of the United States has a different meaning to it for every person Whether its just standing up in class everyday at school and saying the Pledge of Allegiance or if we really have respect for our countries flag When you say the Pledge of Allegiance do you really mean what you say Do you even think about the words that are coming out of your mouth While I was thinking about what to write for this essay these questions got me thinking What does the flag really mean What was the purpose of it being made Ive always wondered why they chose the colors red white and blue to use in the flag and why only thirteen red and white stripes I learned that the stripes represent the original thirteen colonies Georgia South Carolina North Carolina Virginia Maryland Delaware Pennsylvania New Jersey New York Massachusetts New Hampshire Connecticut and Rhode Island There was an issue when two new states Kentucky and Vermont were added to the Union They were debating whether to add two more stars and stripes to the flag or not The result was that they did end up added the two new states onto the flag Later they noticed that for every new state that was made they would have to add a new star and a stripe Someone finally suggested that we change the stripes back to thirteen to represent the first thirteen states that the United States admitted in our country They would only add a star or each new state admitted That was successfully followed through We now have thirteen stripes and fifty stars on the flag
