Number of stripes on American flag

How many stripes are there on American flag?

13

It is widely known the fact that the national flag of the United States of America, often called the American flag, consists of thirteen equal horizontal stripes of red alternating with white, with a blue rectangle in the canton (referred to the “union”) bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed stars.  It is important to know that the 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 states of the United States of America.  Needless to say, the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British colonies that declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain.
