The Stars and Stripes set of 20 stamps chronicles the development of the American flag from Colonial times to the present. Each flag has an interesting story behind it.
The 50-star flag, which represents the United States today, was designed in 1958 by Robert Heft as a school project. He devised the combination of stars and sewed the flag, which earned him a B-minus on the assignment. Heft forwarded the design to his congressman, who eventually helped it become the official flag. Heft’s original flag is faded from frequent display. It has flown over every state capital building and 88 U.S. embassies. An uneven patch at one corner is from a 1967 attack on the embassy in Saigon. Heft has received many offers to buy his flag, but has turned them all down. He travels around the country telling how the flag originated.
