United States Minor Outlying Islands Flag
The flag of the United States Minor Outlying Islands, also known as the American flag, consists of 13 equal horizontal stripes of red and white, with a blue rectangle in the upper left corner bearing 50 small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows and alternating rows of five and six stars.
The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America, and the 13 stripes represent the original 13 colonies that declared independence from Great Britain in 1776. The flag was officially adopted on July 4, 1960, after Hawaii became the 50th state to join the Union. As the U.S. Minor Outlying Islands are under the jurisdiction of the United States government, the American flag serves as their official flag.
