On Tuesday, April 20, the White House said it is now “strongly supporting” Washington, DC gaining statehood.
To solidify the bill, Democrats would need the support of at least 10 GOP senators in order to get a DC statehood bill without obstructing the 60-vote filibuster.
With this news, people have taken to social media to showcase what they think a 51-star US flag would look like.
Check out the flags people created below.
- Keir Starmer has perfect response after a confrontation with pub landlord spreading misinformation
- Video of shelter dog reacting to being adopted is 12 seconds of pure joy

Another Redditor named u/114514 took the circle pattern a step further, putting it front and center.
Additionally, some have taken on the shape of a star and pentagram, which at times can be seen as an occult symbol.
Some examples were much closer to the flag Americans know and love:
Last but not least, a Redditor named r/vexillologycirclejerk posted an animated video of the American eagle heaving stars from the flag. How iconic.
