Is a gun's hidden inner triggering mechanism ( the traditional gun's first stage of firing ) best pictured by white stars on a blue background as this would represent the metal-pounding primer sparks working within the dark enclosed triggering chamber ( a very very sad dark blue area ) that is located in the upper corner of a traditional gun ? Also is the barrel of a gun ( the last stage of a gun's firing ) best pictured by red and white stripes which would represent when the gun is alternating between firing and being at rest ( at rest when white light enters the gun's barrel from the outside and when the traditional gun is at rest so that it may reload ) ? Note that actually the color of metal-pounding primer sparks and also the color of exploding gunpowder may both possibly be of any color, but white stars would best represents sparks of all possible colors, and red for burning gunpower best represents anything which burns.

I believe that a hidden subliminal picture of a gun on a flag would be the worst possible flag to represent democracy and justice, as democracy and justice do not work as fast as a gun works. A hidden picture of a gun on a flag would represent to me something much different than democracy and justice.

Are you serious?

maybe research the history of what guns looked like in 1700s. Anything can seem like it has a connection if you try hard enough.

You are failing to read between the lines.

Our friendly OP here is simply explaining in his opinion, what the US Flag represents.

And due to the subjective nature of interpretation, he is correct.

If you think it means something else, you are correct too.

That is how subjective opinion works. Your's can conflict with someone else's and you can both still be perfectly correct in your own mind.

What a symbol represents or means is arbitrary and entirely up to your own personal interpretation. It is abstract and malleable.

normally subjective opinion doesn't start with a "Is" and end with a "?"

if it is just his opinion then I completely agree.

I would appreciate any other ideas as to what the US Flag has a similar appearance to.

The US Flag may also be similar in appearance to the sun ( a bright star in the vast dark universe ) and the sunshine that reaches the earth from our sun, that brings and permits active life on the earth.

The US Flag may also have a similar appearance of displaying how a living seed may grow from being a tiny seed to expand into something else that is very much larger.

Who said it's intended to represent democracy and justice?

Here's a nice survey of different configurations of US
Looks like it was originally 'a soup with many cooks'.
