The flag was changed because Kentucky and Vermont were added as states.

The flag of the United States of America has been changed 27 times, beginning with the first flag on June 14, 1777. It had 13 stars and 13 stripes. The second flag was made official in 1795 when two more states were admitted: Vermont and Kentucky. This flag from 1795 to 1818 had 15 stars and 15 stripes. Then in 1818 the flag was changed back to 13 stripes adding a star for each new state admitted to the U.S. The remaining 23 flags were made official on July 4th at various intervals until the latest flag with 50 stars representing Hawaii statehood (August 1959) became official on July 4th 1960.

Except for the 23 years from 1795 until 1818, the U.S. flag has always had 13 stripes.

In 1795 and again in 1818. In 1795 after Vermont and Kentucky were admitted to the USA two more stars and two more stripes were added to the flag of the United States of America. This 15 star 15 stripe US flag lasted until 1818 when five more states were admitted. At that time the US Congress decided to revert to the original 13 alternating red and white stripes and add a star to represent each new state. The 15 star 15 stripe flag is known as the "Star Spangled Banner" the flag of our National Anthem.

There were 15 stars on the flag until 1818 when it was changed to 20 to accounts for the states that had been added.

The U.S. flag in 1787, was still the original flag with the 13 stars arranged in the circle pattern. It would not be changed until 1795 to acknowledge Kentucky and Vermont, when it was changed to 15 stars (which were arranged in a 3 across/5 down pattern), and 15 stripes. It would remain this way until 1818 when it then had 20 stars, and the stripes were reduced back to 13 which is how they been ever since.

No. At least not "officially." The U.S. flag from 1777 to 1795 had 13 stars and 13 red & white stripes. Then in 1795, after Vermont and Kentucky joined we had a 15 star flag with 15 red and white stripes, our "Star Spangled Banner." Then in 1818 after five more states joined our flag had 20 stars and 13 red and white stripes.

There are 13 stripes on the flag of the United States of America. Six white and 7 red stripes. However, from 1795 to 1818 our national flag had 15 stars and 15 stripes representing the 15 states of the USA at the time.

Yes, there was a Flag Law or Act of 1818. This was the final Flag Act that called for 20 white stars in 5 rows, with 4 in each row, on a blue background and 13 stripes alternating between red and white.

From 1795 to 1818, the US used a flag that had 15 stars and 15 stripes. It signified the original colonies and the addition of 2 new states, Vermont and Kentucky. The 15 stripes were for the 15 states in the USA at that time. On July 4, 1818, a new flag was created. It had 20 stars for 5 new states that were added to the US. This flag and all that have followed have had 13 stripes, representing the original 13 states.

There were 13 stars and 13 stripes and that wasnt changed until 1795 when Virginia and Kentucky were added to the Union.

The flag was changed to Red-White-Blue in 1795 by the French because those were the same as the colours of the French flag. Before it was Orange-White-Blue, the Prinsenvlag. This flag was invented in 1587 and the colours are based on William of Orange's livery colours.

AnswerNot much change except for the number of stars and their placement. Original US flag had 13 stripes (as it still does) and 13 stars. A star was added for each State that joined the Union, and the placement of the stars changed patterns as necessary for uniformity. In 1795 when Vermont and Kentucky were admitted to the U.S. our flag had 15 stars AND 15 stripes, alternating red and white. This flag is known as the "Star Spangled Banner." Then in 1818 the flag returned to 13 stripes and 20 stars for 20 states. Since then it has remained the same with 13 alternating red and white stripes with the addition of stars for each new state.
