The creation of the American flag dates back to 1776, but it was not officially adopted until June 14, 1777. The thirteen stripes of the American flag are the symbolic representation of the first thirteen member states of the United States. The five-pointed stars symbolize all the Member States present today and a star is added when a new one arrives, but only on the 4th of July following its entry. The 48 stars remained on the banner from 1912 to 1959.
