Why does the flag have 50 star?
if you are talkin bout the american flag 50 star, 1 for each state
The flag of the United States of America in 1964 had 50 stars, the same as today. The 50 star US flag is the longest flying flag in US history, second only to the 48 star flag. When Alaska was admitted to the USA in 1959 we had a 49 star flag. Then in 1960 another star was added for the new state of Hawaii making it a 50 star flag.
No one. There is no such thing as the American flag. Should you mean the US flag then there are various companies that make 50 star US flags, not all of them US companies. If you are referencing who designed the first 50 star US flag, that would be Robert G. Heft. Heft's flag design was chosen and adopted by presidential proclamation after Alaska and before Hawaii was admitted into the union in 1959.
There are 50 stars on the flag representing the 50 states that make up the United State of America. The 13 stripes (alternating red and white) represent the 13 original colonies. Those 13 are: Delaware Pennsylvania New Jersey Georgia Connecticut Massachusetts Maryland South Carolina New Hampshire Virginia New York North Carolina Rhode Island The flags that followed and the states it represented being added are: 15 Star flag (1795-1818) - Vermont, Kentucky 20 Star flag…
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.
The 50 star flag was designed by Robert G. Heft. To find out more information on him, check out the related link. The United States Army Institute of Heraldry designed the 50-star flag. Mr. Heft's design was one of many that were offered by US citizens. Heft was not the only one to suggest the pattern that was eventually selected, but he was the only one to self-aggrandize his effort.
