What colors are on the American flag? Did you know that each color used in a flag has a special meaning? In the American flag the blue stands for justice, the white stands for purity, and the red stands for courage.

The symbols on the flag are also significant. The original flag had thirteen stars and thirteen stripes--one for each of the colonies. Today the American flag proudly displays fifty stars, one for each state in the union. The thirteen stripes remain unchanged, reminding America of its beginning as thirteen colonies.

Think of items that have special significance to you or your family. Create a family flag, using only the most important of these symbols. Here are the meanings for several colors:
Blue = justice
Black = sorrow
Green = hope
Orange = strength
Red = courage
White = faith
