- The flag of the United States is one of the world’s oldest flags. There was a version of it containing a Union Jack which was first raised on New Year’s Day in 1776 as the American colonies fought for independence from Britain.
- In 1795, the Stars and Stripes got its first makeover. Two stripes and two stars were added to represent the arrival of two new states, Kentucky and Vermont. This new flag design flying during an attack in 1814 over Fort McHenry, Baltimore that served as inspiration for Frances Scott Key to write The-Star-Spangled Banner. This would become the National Anthem in 1931.

This official mark and emblem demonstrating the nation’s authority contains an American Bald Eagle, clutching an olive branch in his right talon, along with a bundle of thirteen arrows in his left talon. A shield is present on the breast of the eagle with thirteen vertical white and red stripes, beneath a blue chief. The motto “E Pluribus Unum” (Out of many, one) is inscribed on a scroll in his beak. Over the head of the eagle, a golden glory is breaking through a cloud, and surrounds a constellation of thirteen stars on an azure field.
