Flags are used all over the world. They are mainly used to identify different countries, regions, and nations, but almost every flag has some sort of symbolic meaning behind it. For example, the 13 stripes on the American flag represent the original 13 colonies, and the 50 stars represent the 50 states. By creating your own flag, you can create a symbolic representation of yourself along with colours and designs. Creating your own flag online can be done quickly and easily.
