    Why the flag of Liberia resembles American flag
    The Liberian constitution and flag was modeled after the Constitution of United States and the American flag because Liberia was the only African nation on the African continent that was a colony for the United States and Liberia was founded, colonized, established and controlled by freed American slaves and ex-caribbean slaves as settlers from the United States and the Caribbean islands with the help and support from the American Colonization Society, a private organization established in 1816 by Robert Finley of New Jersey (USA)

    Flag of the United States (1837–1845), which had 26 stars as there were that many states in the union at that time, was used in the first government of the Commonwealth of Liberia until their new flag was ready.
    The flag was first raised on August 24, 1847 and that is the reason Liberia celebrates August 24 as the 'National Flag Day', observed as a National Holiday in Liberia
