Our Flag

Flag of the United States----The colonists designed a large number of flags to express their political sentiments and ideals. This resulted in the use of many different flags.
In the latter part of 1775, the Continental Congress appointed a special committee to adopt one flag for all to use. This flag signified colonial unity against oppression and continued union with Great Britain and was raised for the first time on January 1, 1776.
The flag was called by different names and had several different designs until legislation enacted in 1818 reestablished the number of stripes at 13 and instituted the policy, "That on the admission of every new state into the Union, one star be added to the union of the flag. The last star was added in 1960 with the addition of Hawaii.
