Telling about the geographical peculiarities of this country, we should mention Niagara Falls. It is one of the most beautiful scenes in the world. The word “Niagara” is an Indian word which means “roaring waters’. And that is definitely true because the loud sound of falling water can be heard 25 kilometers away from the place. The cliff where the water is falling from is 27 meters, so it makes a very loud noise.
The American Flag The US flag has thirteen white lines, or stripes, that represent the thirteen colonies; the fifty stars represent the fifty states. The colours have symbolic meaning too: red- hardiness and valour, white- purity and innocence, blue- justice.
