Flag of the United States

The flag of the United States consists of 13 equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton bearing 50 small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 U.S. states and the 13 stripes represent the original Thirteen Colonies that rebelled against the British crown. Nicknames for the United States flag include "the Stars and Stripes" or "Old Glory," with the latter nickname coined by Captain William Driver, a 19th-century shipmaster.
