The national flag of the United States of America, often referred to as the American flag, consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to specifically as the "union") bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America and the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first states in the Union.Nicknames for the flag include the "Stars and Stripes", "Old Glory", and "The Star-Spangled Banner". The man credited with designing the current 50 star American flag is Robert G. Heft. He was 17 years old at the time and did the flag design as a high school class project while living with his grandparents in Ohio.
