48 Stars on the World War II Flag
Since today is U.S. Flag Day, the flag of our country during World War II had 48 stars arranged in six rows of eight.
The famous one in the flag-raising at Iwo Jima had that arrangement.
U.S. Flag Day is celebrated today because it was this date that the Second Continental Congress adopted the flag in 1777 during the American Revolution.
So, Happy Birthday Star-Spangled Banner. --GreGen
