The stars are a symbol of the heavens and the divine goal to which man has aspired from time immemorial. There is one for every state, fifty in total. The stripe is symbolic of the rays of light emanating from the sun, with thirteen to represent original states whose bravery won us our independence nearly 250 years ago. Together they are a testament to the wisdom of our forefathers, a sign of the growth that has been achieved, and of course, our unwavering belief in freedom and justice for all.
