My country is the United States of America.

Our flag has thirteen stripes, seven red and six white, representing the thirteen original colonies which became the first thirteen states of the U.S.A. These colonies were all on the east coast.

Over time, the United States expanded westward. (In the process, we took land away from the "native Americans" who were already living there). The new land was organized into more and more states. Today there are fifty states.

The flag has a blue rectangle on it with fifty stars, one for each state. Because the number of states has increased over time, the flag has changed. It has changed twice in my lifetime. When I was a kid it had forty-eight stars. In 1959 a forty-ninth was added for Alaska, and then a fiftieth for Hawaii. 

The national anthem of the United States is The Star-Spangled Banner, and the title refers to the American flag with its stars.
