On the flag of which country would you find the most stars?
Answer: The American flag prominently features 50 stars, each of which represent an official state of the United States of America. Those 50 stars are the most stars that appear on any national flag. The flag, as it flies today with 50 stars and 13 stripes, was designed in 1958 by 17-year-old high school student, Robert G. Heft, as a school project. While his teacher only awarded Heft a B- on the project, President Dwight D. Eisenhower chose his design out of 1,500 entries. Brazil takes second place with a total of 27 stars on their national flag.
The U.S. is a country of 50 states covering a vast swath of North America, with Alaska in the northwest and Hawaii extending the nation’s presence into the Pacific Ocean. Major Atlantic Coast cities are New York, a global finance and culture center, and capital Washington, DC. Midwestern metropolis Chicago is known for influential architecture and on the west coast, Los Angeles’ Hollywood is famed for filmmaking.
