What does the gold tassel cord on the American Flag mean?
It is an honorable enrichment only, not an integral part of the flag. As it is attached on the edge, it does not "deface" the flag which therefore remains the Stars and Stripe…s of the US (as per the opinion of the US Attorney General in 1925). The fringe is used only inside or on a staff when carried outside by a bearer, it is never flown from a staff or pole outside (the fringe would fray). As there is no wind to move a flag when inside, the gold fringe adds an element of "prettiness", nothing more. The US is indeed prone to having a fringe more than other countries but most national flags have a fringe in some circumstances and no other country attributes any meaning to the fringe except that it looks better. There are many posts that posit the theory that the fringe represents martial or admiralty law. However there is no law, decree, order or other legally enforceable proclamation that mentions the fringe, either to prescribe or proscribe its use. Many quote Executive Order 10834 (under President Eisenhower) however this is a public document available in full on the Internet (try the US Archives) and a review will show no mention of a fringe at all. US Army Orders (840-10) do make the use of the fringe obligatory inside, but these apply to the US Army only. The law that defines the flag and its use is USC Title 4 Chapter 1 - again a public document whose provisions are enforceable in a federal court. There is nothing that says that a civilian or civilian organisation may not fly a flag with a gold fringe. Strangely, although admiralty law applies to ships, the fringe is never flown on a ship, surely an inconsistency.
It stands for the 13 colonies
The book, Our Flag, published by the US Congress, states the following: The colors red, white, and blue did not have meanings for the Stars and Stripes when it was adopted …in 1777. Various interpretations of the colors exist, but they are not official. There is a link below to a copy of Our Flag.
I believe the American Flag with tassels indicates a that a state is ruled by Marshall Law and that the head of the state's Judiciary Branch is the head Sheriff.
The American Flag means freedom and a United States to americans
The 50 stars are representative of the 50 states in the US. The 13 stripes represent the original 13 colonies. A flag represents the nation that adopts it. Many people… assume that the colors of the US Flag had specific meanings or stood for some characteristic. The red, white, and blue had no meanings at all when the Stars and Stripes were adopted as our national flag in 1777. But, the colors did have meaning when the Great Seal of the United States was developed. White meant purity and innocence, Red meant hardiness and valour, and Blue meant vigilance and justice, according to the Secretary of the Continental Congress, Charles Thompson. The stars on the flag stand for the fifty states in the U.S.A the stars stand for the fifty states
There is no eagle on the American flag.

White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."…
Not sure but this is what i do know. The stars and stripes of the American flag originated as a result of a resolution adopted by the Marine Committee of the Second Continent…al Congress at Philadelphia on June 14, 1777. The resolution read:Resolved, that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field representing a new constellation. The resolution gave no instruction as to how many points the stars should have, nor how the stars should be arranged on the blue union. Consequently, some flags had stars scattered on the blue field without any specific design, some arranged the stars in rows, and some in a circle. The first Navy Stars and Stripes had the stars arranged in staggered formation in alternate rows of threes and twos on a blue field. Other Stars and Stripes flags had stars arranged in alternate rows of four, five and four. Some stars had six points while others had eight. Strong evidence indicates that Francis Hopkinson of New Jersey, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, was responsible for the stars in the U.S. flag. At the time that the flag resolution was adopted, Hopkinson was the Chairman of the Continental Navy Board's Middle Department. Hopkinson also helped design other devices for the Government including the Great Seal of the United States. For his services, Hopkinson submitted a letter to the Continental Admiralty Board asking "whether a Quarter Cask of the public Wine will not be a proper & reasonable Reward for these Labours of Fancy and a suitable Encouragement to future Exertions of a like Nature." His request was turned down since the Congress regarded him as a public servant.
Red, white and blue cord and tassels are placed on the U.S., President of the United States, and Vice President of the United States flags representing the President of the Un…ited States or Vice President respectively. Otherwise, cord and tassels of gold are appropriate.
