Flag of the United States of America

Myoung-won Kwon's avatar Myoung-won Kwon

The image of the American Flag is created with two sets of Hangul characters. People who settled in the colonies wanted religious freedom and escape persecution. The thirteen red and white strips representing the original thirteen colonies are made with the characters for Freedom ( 자 유 ). The United States has 50 states living together cooperatively with peace and harmony. The blue and fifty white stars are written with the character for Peace ( 평 화 ).
