The first official American flag, known as "the Betsy Ross flag" is the most debated flag in American history. Adopted June 14, 1777 (later to become Flag Day), Continental Congress resolved "that the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field representing a new constellation." Since Congress didn't specify dimensions, proportions or size of the field or canton, an arrangement for the stars or even the shape of the flag, there were many variations in American flags until 1912.
A wide variety of Historical flags are offered that comprised our country's unique and storied history. Constructed of 100% Nylon, the flags are all 3'x5' in size, except for the 2'x3' current Gadsden & 2'x3' Betsy Ross.
This flag is fully sewn.
