Looks to be only 48 stars on the flag.

Oops. I can't count.* 51.





*And apparently, neither can the manufacturer of that flag.

Thank you for making me count the stars!
I counted 50 (after conting 50, 49, 51, and then again 50!). If the guy on the left holding the corner is covering another star under his hand, then there are 51 stars.

Did anyone count the stripes yet?

John

I checked the stripes. They're fine. But the amount of rows of stars isn't right either.

Yes, probably that's what it is... good ole Chinese QualityControl and abysmal US oversight.
Though I used to live in Puerto Rico and they add the 51 star all the time; mainly for unofficial pro-statehood party activities. The RNC is kinda that type of event (at least in heir mind), so I would not be surprise they had 51 stars flags there in the crowd. But at least I'm pretty sure they would use the right number of rows for stars; 9 instead of 6 .

That star pattern in the pictured flag is wrong....

From the U.S. Flag Codes...

"The flag of the United States of America consists of 13 equal horizontal stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton bearing 50 small, white, five-pointed stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows of five stars."

The U.S. flag I proudly fly on the front of my house is correct. \:\)

Yeah, I got the star pattern and count too. Nice documentation, Brother Rick.

Is that Elvis on the left?

Sadly, I knew who he was talking about. Luckily the PVR hasn't been set to record that mind jelly since we moved away from tape.

2 Stripes and one big red leaf FTW.

Yours is way too complicated. When the flag makers of our country got together, they started to think really hard and then suddenly an oak leaf flew in the window and landed on Buddie's red desk blotter. BAM! Time for a well earned beer!

Good Lord, am I going to have to do this for every darn country's flag now?

From The National Flag of Canada...

'The maple leaf

Well before the coming of the first European settlers, Canada's aboriginal peoples had discovered the food properties of maple sap, which they gathered every spring. According to many historians, the maple leaf began to serve as a Canadian symbol as early as 1700.

Following are some examples of how the maple leaf grew in public consciousness as a symbol of our country until it finally became official on February 15, 1965, as an integral component of the national flag of Canada.

In 1834, Ludger Duvernay is reported to have proposed the maple leaf as an emblem of Canada when the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste was founded on June 24 of that year.

In 1836, Le Canadien, a newspaper published in Lower Canada, referred to it as a suitable emblem for Canada.

In August 1860, at a public meeting held in Toronto, the maple leaf was adopted as the national emblem of Canada for use in the decorations for the Prince of Wales' visit.

In 1867, Alexander Muir, a Toronto schoolmaster and poet, composed the song The Maple Leaf Forever.

In 1914, many Canadian soldiers wore the maple leaf on their military badges, and it was the dominant symbol used by many Canadian regiments serving in World War I.

In 1939, at the beginning of World War II, numerous Canadian troops once again used the maple leaf as a distinctive emblem, displaying it on regimental badges and Canadian army and naval equipment.



Red and white: Canada's national colours

History records that in the first crusade, Bohemund I, a Norman lord, had red crosses cut from his mantles and distributed to the 10,000 crusaders, who then wore them as a distinctive badge on their garments.

In subsequent crusades, each nation was distinguished by a cross of a different colour. France long had a red cross on its banners while England used a white cross. Time and again in history, red and white are found as the colours of France or of England.

Red and white were approved as Canada's official colours in the proclamation of the royal arms of Canada in 1921 by King George V.

In 1957, the colour of the maple leaves on the shield of the Royal Arms of Canada was changed from green on a white ground to red on a white ground in recognition of Canada's official colours.'

Hah hah, OMG, I can't believe I said "Oak". Even this flag is too complicated for me.

In my defense, I planted 9 new Red Oak trees on my property on Sunday so it was probably just stuck in my brain. From our experimentation, they seem to be one of the few hardwood trees along with Red and Green Ash that seem to handle the salt spray OK.
