On June 14, 1777 during the Second Constitutional Congress in Philadelphia, Penn., the stars and stripes were adopted as our nation’s official flag.
Two-hundred and thirty-five years later, the American flag now has 50 stars instead of 13, and has become synonymous with freedom, opportunity and all-around awesomeness. (See also: Top 10: Hot girls in American flag bikinis [SLIDESHOW])
But enough with the history lesson: Erect your flag at full-mast, and check out these ladies wearing, holding and/or posing next to American flags, as we know that’s what you really came here for.
