Why are there six full stripes and seven half-stripes? What does this symbolize?....Just curious
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
Here's some good information Flag of the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and solid info on the istory of the US Flag.
