How many countries flags have stars?

we counted some for school,

spread across their red fields

always red, right?

Red for bleeding blood

as if that was a required part

of their canvas,

must start with red

then a smattering of yellow, blue,

perhaps white

for purity.

Strange that we sew flags

but forget to look at the stars.
