"Long May She Wave": 27 American flags over 237 years

(CBS) - We're a little biased here at The Feed, but I think it's safe to say the U.S. has a grand old flag. Red, white and blue. Stars and stripes. It's one of the most iconic images in the world today. But how has the flag changed over the years? This informative and patriotic video traces the variations of Old Glory from the original thirteen states to the proud fifty we have today.

Do you have a favorite? The stars in the shape of a star (1865) is definitely one of ours. Of course, it's hard to top the fifty nifty United States we live in now. Thanks go to San Francisco's Studio Hinrichs for this quick dose of Americana.
