Red, white, and blue are more than just the colors. Combined, these three colors unite the people of the powerful United States of America. Though seen in different environments, the use of the American flag and its colors can be tied together, creating a bigger meaning. The thirteen stripes in white and red represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. The fifty stars in the blue rectangle represent the fifty states in the US, while the blue rectangle itself represents the union. This strong bond of colors shows how much strength and love we have for our country. Patriotism has and continues to play a large role in our society.
