With the blue-and-white checked dress, the ruby red slippers represent the flag of the United States of America in "The Wizard of Oz."

Specifically, the slippers are silver in the original 1900 book edition but ruby red in the beloved 1939 film version of "The Wizard of Oz." In the movie, Dorothy Gale's character may be interpreted as representing the straightforward, practical, ordinary person of the Midwestern heartland of the United States. That is why her dress and shoes symbolize the red, white and blue colors of the U.S. flag.
