What is the History of the United States Flag?

The Continental Congress enacted an act on June 14, 1777, establishing an official flag for the new nation. President Harry S. Truman established June 14 as Flag Day on Aug. 3, 1949.

Our flag’s history is as fascinating as that of the United States of America. It has withstood battles, inspired songs, and changed over time as the country it represents grew. Yet, the initial American flag’s origin is uncertain. According to certain historians, it is thought to have been created by New Jersey Congressman Francis Hopkinson and made by Philadelphia seamstress Betsy Ross.

An enormous, 10-by-17-foot flag was given Old Glory by its owner, William Driver, a ship captain from Massachusetts. Driver’s flag is reported to have survived several efforts to deface it during the Civil War, thereby inspiring the widespread nickname for all American flags. Once the war was made, the Driver was permitted to fly the flag over the Tennessee Statehouse. The flag is a vital relic of the National Museum of American History, and it was last presented in Tennessee in 2006, with permission from the Smithsonian.

Between 1777 and 1960, Congress issued many measures altering the shape, design, and layout of the flag and allowing the addition of stars and stripes to reflect each new state’s admittance.

The flag now has 13 horizontal stripes, seven red and six white, alternating. The stripes represent the 13 original colonies. The stars on the other hand, represent the Union’s 50 states. The flag’s colors are also symbolic; red denotes toughness and courage, white symbolizes purity and innocence, and blue indicates vigilance, endurance, and justice.

The massive 1814 garrison flag that survived the 25-hour pounding of Fort McHenry. This flag has been preserved for the long term by the National Museum of American History. The flag, which was known by that name until it was removed from the museum in December 1998, had gotten dirty and weakened over time. This preservation effort started in earnest in June 1999 and is still going strong today. The flag is currently kept at a 10-degree angle in a low-oxygen, filtered light chamber. It is examined at a microscopic level regularly for evidence of deterioration or damage within its fibers.
