The national flag of the United States of America consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the "union") bearing fifty 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 states of the United States of America and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union. Nicknames for the flag include the "Stars and Stripes", "Old Glory", and "The Star-Spangled Banner".

Flag proposal "American Republic" by Wcaden.
51-star U.S. flag proposal.
This is a simple tweak of the current flag. The single star represents the entire Union. The wreath represents abundant blessing, excellence and sovereignty (an allusion to ancient Greek and Roman times). The rest remains the same.
"51 States" With admission of PR maybe in 2018, the USA will need a new layout. This one saves having to count all the stars if they are arranged in this layout. Design by Rotten Ali
