In 1818, Congress ordered that the American flag be given a makeover. The redesign reduced the number of stripes to 13 reflective of the original colonies. Congress also ordered the number of stars to start at 20 to reflect the number of admitted states in the Union. Today there are 50 states and 50 stars. Read where one mathematician would put a 51st star if the U.S. ever adds another state.
