Inscription
"Old Glory" or "The Stars and Stripes" as our present day American flag is referred to, is the most recognizable symbol of freedom, unity and hope on earth. Our flag and its meaning are described in the lyrics of our national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner" by Francis Scott Key. After Hawaii was admitted as the 50th state on August 21, 1959, a new 50-star flag was needed. An Executive Order of President Eisenhower on that date provided for the arrangement of the stars in nine staggered horizontal rows and eleven staggered columns. This, the 27th flag of the United States, became the official flag on July 4th, 1960.
