Why does US flag have 50 stars?
What do the stars on the US flag mean?
Each star on the flag represents a state of the United States. The first stars were 13 states and the US flag had 13 stars; now the US has 50 states and 50 stars. The stars & stripes style of the US flag has its artistic merits too. The sophisticated blend of red, white and blue make it an attractive flag and the flag can grow more stars if the US should add another state.
