There are 50 stars on the current American flag. Though many would attempt to make a correction, that it is the US Flag you refer to, America is also a viable and correct title. The term America has become a common informal name used in reference to the United States of AMERICA, and citizens of this country are commonly known abroad as "Americans" not "United Statsians" or any other absurdity resulting from ignorant attempts at politically correct speech. The US is currently the only nation in either North or South America with the distinction "of America" in its name and thus it is considered socially, linguistically, and politically acceptable to refer to the nation by its colloquial handle.
