Fun Fact: The name Old Glory was given to a large, 10-by-17-foot US flag by its owner, William Driver, a sea captain from Massachusetts. Inspiring the common nickname for all American flags.
Driver’s flag is said to have survived multiple attempts to deface it during the Civil War. He was able to fly the flag over the Tennessee Statehouse once the war ended. The flag is a primary artifact at the National Museum of American History and was last displayed in Tennessee by permission of the Smithsonian at an exhibition in 2006.
Today the flag consists of 13 horizontal stripes, seven red alternating with six white. The stripes represent the original 13 Colonies and the stars represent the 50 states of the Union. The colors of the flag are symbolic as well; red symbolizes hardiness and valor, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue represents vigilance, perseverance and justice.
