Flats and sharps in music theory

In music, why does the key of F have a B flat and not an A sharp? Is there actually a difference, or is it just musical tradition that a flat is used in this key and not a sharp?

Likewise with the other key signatures: why doesn't the key of G have G flat in the key signature instead of F sharp?
