Betsy Ross flag
We stock Betsy Ross flags in 3ft x 5ft sizes in nylon, polyester and 100% cotton. Our single-ply polyester and 100% cotton flags are made outside the U.S. and are an excellent value. These are good quality flags, but the nylon flags are more durable. We also carry two sizes of Betsy Ross stick flags.
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.
