  1. The symbols of my country are the eagle, the flag, and anything red, white, and blue. The flag has red and white stripes and in the corner, there is some blue. The blue part has fifty white stars. The stars represent the fifty states in the country. There are thirteen stripes. These represent the thirteen original colonies, from when we were part of England.
