I like flags. I mentioned that, right?
So, in honor of the nation's birthday, here are some flags through its history, including a few before it was actually a separate country.
After 1877 the flags more or less fall into line and keep the same basic idea as our current flag, just adding in new states as necessary. There hasn't been a change in the flag since 1960 when our last states were added. Puerto Rico, we're waiting for you.
