The meaning of the numbers of stars flag is based solely on symbolism and has nothing to do with the number of countries which joined the union. Most of us have some kind of favorite number. It may be our birth date or the date of a special occasion in our life.
Others claim that a particular number seems to show up all over the place throughout years of their life. Naturally this number will be of great significance to that person.

The significance of a Birth Number; Since the immemorial times people could feel the mysterious influence of numbers. Always the one, who could unravel the mystery of numbers, was able to solve the mystery of universal harmony and, perhaps, the mystery of life itself. Even Pythagoras asserted that "everything is a number". He believed that numbers are living some special, independent lives, that they have their own destiny, characters, habits and preferences. Since time the immemorial the ancient science of Numerology was trying to understand the magic and the inner mystery of numbers.
Numbers are always around us since our birth till the very last moments of our lives. Deliberately or not - we obey their laws. Any word can be reduced to a number, any concept and any character.
The number of a birth date can not be changed, it is constant in the human life and it is representing the vibrating effect which is present from the time of one's birth. However, what is the extent to which it can determine a person's character or control his destiny, his future, how it depends on the other factors of Numerology.
In theory, two people with one and the same number of birthday should be similar to each other in many respects, but actually it happens very rarely. Most likely, the number of birth date is just revealing the inherited traits of a given person, his ability to control circumstances; this number is more like a governing factor rather than dominant.
