ArdvanderLinden started the project in New York and painted flags on Union Square (NY). The first version of the Stars and Stripes was adopted in 1777 and had only 13 stars. The present 50 stars on the flag represent the 50 U.S. states and the 13 stripes represent the original 13 colonies that rebelled against the British Crown and became the first states in the Union.

A field of flags was created and the sight of the square changed rapidly. A lot of people asked questions about the flags, Ard van der Linden gave some interviews and many people took pictures. For us painting flags in public was an interesting experience; the public was enthusiastic and emotional involved, we changed the view of Union Square, we spread a message of unity and questioned identity.
