"🎶 Oh, say can you see,
By the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hailed
At the twilight's last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
Thru the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched
Were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets red glare,
The bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night
That our flag was still there.
O, say, does that
Star-Spangled Banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave?"
~ "The Star Spangled Banner", National Anthem of the United States
Happy Independence Day, United States! 🇺🇸 🎆 🎉 🎈
oil painting of the American flags
The United States tartan is different in warp and weft. Produced to celebrate American tourism in Scotland, 1990, the colours are taken from the flags of the two nations and the Atlantic Ocean that separates them.
Known alternately as:
The American flag
The Stars and Stripes
Red, White and Blue
The Star-Spangled Banner
the American flag has undergone many revisions. The current design of the U.S. flag is its 27th; the design of the flag has been modified officially 26 times since 1777. The 48-star flag was in effect for 47 years until the 49-star version became official on July 4, 1959. The 50-star flag was ordered by then president Eisenhower on August 21, 1959, and was adopted in July 1960. It is the longest-used version of the U.S. flag and has been in use for over 61 years.
