Happy Flag Day. I was idly shambling around Forest Hills a few years ago when I spotted this 48-star flag on a garage. The 48 stars were current between 1912 and 1959, the ratifications of Arizona and Alaska.
The US had 47 states for a little over 1 month in 1912, between the ratifications of New Mexico and Arizona; I wonder if a 47-star flag was ever produced.
Will the USA ever have more states, or have we stopped at an even 50?
