Star-Mangled Banner: American Flag Has 51 Stars for Pence Meeting With EU In Brussels


The Star-Spangled Banner looked more starry than usual during one of U.S. Vice President Mike Pence’s appearances in Brussels, The Daily Mail reports.

A background picture of the American flag that went up alongside the European Union flag as Pence and EU leader Donald Tusk spoke on Monday had 51 stars. The Brussels version of the flag added one white star to the iconic flag, instead of the usual 50 representing each state of the nation.

The EU Council did not immediately respond when asked about the error with the misplaced star-state.



  1. This is how far they’re gonna go to find negative. Like who really counts if theres 52 or 51 or 50 stars on the flag in brussels?????

  2. We had one president of the United States who had 57 states, and he was the president, so don’t blame Brussels for the confusion. Maybe Brussels had added Puerto Rico to the flag you never know.
