The current flag consists of thirteen stripes that represent the original states that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain, thus becoming the first states of the union. It has a blue field in the top right corner with 50 white stars that represent the 50 states of the USA. The 50-star flag was ordered by then President Eisenhower on August 21, 1959, and was adopted in July 1960. The 13 horizontal stripes on the flag are thus closely intertwined with American history.

The original flag of America can be found in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History where the actual flag itself hangs. The flag etiquette, display and care of the American flag is governed by the US flag code, which sets out rules for the official flag. The flag is a symbol of patriotism and statehood and will be seen widely on Memorial Day, on any naval vessel, with the armed forces and in many different places in America, especially during singing of the national anthem. The United States Flag is also celebrated during Flag Day, which although it is a nationwide observance started by President Woodrow Wilson is not actually a national holiday. Citizens of America express their loyalty to America with the Pledge of Allegiance.

The American flag is also known as the star spangled banner or old glory and during the Civil War, no flag became a more popular symbol of Union loyalty than the worn American flag belonging to 19th-century Sea Captain William Driver. Other famous American flags include the grand union flag, confederate flag, confederate battle flag, the gadsden flag, the betsy ross flag and more recently the thin blue line flag of police officers and black lives matter flag. The official flag maker of the national flag has been Annin Flagmakers since 1847, a company that is based in the state of New Jersey. They make flags for different purposes, such as a nylon flag for year-round use and a cotton flag for seasonal use. There would be a need to make a change to the American flag if a new state joined the union. This could happen if Puerto Rico was granted statehood and became a united state. However, there would be no change to the 13 stripes.
