Betsy Ross Miniature Flags
Four inch x six inch silk-like Betsy Ross flag is completely sewn and securely attached to ten inch black staff, topped with gilt spear. Brilliant colors. Made in America.
Congress created the American flag on June 14, 1777. The stripes came from the field of the Grand Union flag and were presumably taken from the Washington coat of arms. It is probable that the stars were also taken from that emblem, and changed to white for color harmony. It is generally conceded that George Washington had a hand in designing this flag and it is fair to assume that the idea of the stars originated with him.
