American Flag - History
The flag of America is more than being a just symbol of the country. In its design of stars and stripes, the American Flag embodies the spirit of a country that rose for its rights and declared independence from the mighty British empire. The history of US flag is quite intriguing. Right since it was adopted by the union of 13 states till the present one with 50 stars that came into existence on July 4, 1960, the American flag has been changed 27 times! But which was the first American Flag? History has it that the first American flag was sewn by Betsy Ross, a seamstress. But lack of official document shrouds the veracity of this argument.
