The national flag of the United States of America is the Star-Spangled Banner. It was made the official flag on June 14, 1777, and had 13 stripes and 13 stars. This is because there were 13 U.S. states when the Declaration of Independence was made in 1776. A star was added as the states increased. At the moment, there are 50 stars as there are 50 states. Washington D.C. has been the capital since 1790.
