Red, white, and blue are popular colors to use on flags because of the more profound history and symbolism these colors have come to represent. A handful of countries choose to utilize red, white, and blue in their flag with the addition of one star, usually added to the upper left corner or left portion of the flag.
Puerto Rico uses a red, white, blue, and one-star flag. The body of the flag features five red and white stripes, with three red stripes and two white stripes. The left portion of the flag features a triangle of blue, with the point of the triangle, pointed toward the center of the flag. Inside the blue triangle is a single white star.
Similarly, Liberia also has a red, white, and blue flag with a single white star. This flag has 11 red and white stripes, with a red stripe featured as the first and last stripe on the flag. A small blue rectangle is located in the flag's upper left corner. Within the blue rectangle is a single, white star.
While it is popular for countries to have a red, white, and blue flag with one star, this design is also famously featured on the state flag of Texas. In the United States, each state will have a flag that represents the people and history of the state. Texas's state flag features two bold stripes of red and white, with the top stripe white and the bottom stripe red. To the left of the flag is a single blue band that runs from the top of the flag to the bottom. Within the blue vertical stripe is a single white star.
The colors used for the state flag in Texas were explicitly chosen to represent the people of Texas. The red and white stripes represent both courage and liberty, while the blue vertical rectangle is meant to represent loyalty. An interesting fact about the state flag of Texas is that this flag is the only state flag that also represented an independent country at one point in its history.
Several flags have adopted the red, white, and blue colors with a single star. A prominent example of this flag design is Cuba. The national flag for Cuba features white and blue stripes with a red triangle in the left portion of the flag. Inside the red triangle is a single white star.
