History of the U. S. Flag Facts: 
The history of the flag is really fascinating.  The first American flag was influenced by the British Red Ensign flag and was called the Grand Union Flag because it represented the Union of the 13 colonies. The design depicted the British Ensign flag in the corner and then 13 alternating red and white stripes. This flag was first adapted in December of 1775.

Later on June 14, 1777 the Grand Union Flag was replaced with a blue canton with white stars representing the new constellation which now represented the United States of America. This was approved by the U. S. Congress and made the official flag of the US. This flag set the precedent for all future flag designs. 

In 1795 another US flag design change was made when two new states were added to the Union, two new stars and two new stripes were added to represent the 15 states. This change set a precedent that for every state added to the U.S. they planned to add a star and stripe. This flag was nicknamed the "Star Spangled Banner"

In 1818 the flag went through another change this time due to the addition of 5 new states between 1795 and 1817.  In 1818 Congress decreed that only new stars would be added when a state was added to the Union and the flag would retain the original 13 stripes to represent the 13 original colonies. The new stars were added on July 4, 1818 and this design is still in effect today.
