    2016 U.S. Flag

    Forever 49¢ | 3 Stamp Formats

    Celebrate “Old Glory” with this patriotic 2016 U.S. Flag stamp.

    The American flag has long symbolized the strength and spirit of our nation. This 2016 U.S. Flag First-Class Mail® stamp features a detail of Emmanuel Faure's vivid photograph of a U.S. flag waving against the background of the sky.

    On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress passed the Flag Act, stating that the U.S. flag should consist of 13 alternating red and white stripes and 13 white stars in a blue field. In 1818, Congress passed legislation stipulating that the number of stars on the American flag should match the number of states in the Union. There are 13 stripes and 50 stars on the current flag.

    The words “USA FOREVER” are printed on the bottom of the stamp. Terrence W. McCaffrey was the art director of the project and Greg Breeding designed the stamp. The self-adhesive 2016 U.S. Flag First-Class Mail® stamp is being issued in coils of 100 and in books of 10 and 20.
