Oh, ok. I still
prefer the rectangular star field. When I was 9 years old (1959), I saw 2 new stars added to the flag. One for Alaska in January and one for Hawaii in August. I grew up seeing the rectangular star field and I would prefer it to remain that way, no matter how many new
states are added. That is the flag I said the Pledge of Allegiance to in school. It is the flag that appeared on the television every night at the station sign off. It is the flag I saluted and respected while in the Army. It is the flag I now fly, every day, in front of my apartment.
