    Why are there six full stripes and seven half-stripes? What does this symbolize?....Just curious :)
     
  2. this does not symbolize anything

    they ony standardized that the canton rest on the 8th stripe in 1912 (aswell as standardizing the position of the stars}

    before that time the canton (blue section} coud rest on any stripe and the stars could be anywhere in the canton as long as there was the correct number
