Civics (History & Government) Questions for the Naturalization Test

Integrated Civics

Symbols & Holidays


Let’s me sum up the keys in the “Symbols & Holidays” questions.  A flag has 13 stripes which represent 13 original colonies; it also has 50 stars which represent 50 states, so one star represents a state.  One more thing you need to know that’s the national anthem which is “The Star-Spangled Banner”.

Here are the questions are extract from 100 civics question & answers for the naturalization test which is published on

96. Why does the flag have 13 stripes?
▪ because there were 13 original colonies
▪ because the stripes represent the original colonies

97. Why does the flag have 50 stars?*
▪ because there is one star for each state
▪ because each star represents a state
▪ because there are 50 states

98. What is the name of the national anthem? – The Star-Spangled Banner

“Symbols” section has only 3 questions.


This section is easy for most of us, so I don’t have to give any hints.  I sum up anyway.  July 4 is an Independence Day; Christmas and New Year’s Day are two national U.S. holidays.  Other national U.S. holidays are Thanksgiving, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Presidents’ Day and Columbus Day.

The following questions are retrieved from the 100 civics questions and answer for the naturalization test.
