Today in History, April 4th 1818: US CONGRESS ADOPTS THE AMERICAN FLAG Congress decides the flag of the United States would consist of 13 red and white stripes and 20 stars, with a new star to be added for every new state of the Union.

There never was an official 19-star flag; the 15-star 15-stripe flag served throughout 1795-1818 even though five new states (Tennessee 1796, Ohio 1803, Louisiana 1812, Indiana 1816 and Mississippi 1817) joined the Union during that period.
