“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America ...” New Americans say these words for the first time at naturalization ceremonies around the country. On July 4th at Seattle Center, more than 500 candidates originating from Angola to Zambia will recite them together in the largest daytime Independence Day observance in the Northwest.

Try to correctly answer these three sample U.S. citizenship test questions:

1. When was the Declaration of Independence adopted?

2. In what document is the Freedom of Speech found?

3. What do the stars on the U.S. flag represent?
