What’s the History of the US Flag?
The Continental Colors was hoisted on a towering 76-foot (23-meter) pole at Prospect Hill on January 1, 1776. This happened shortly after the American Revolution began. The flag was raised at the behest of Gen. George Washington.
The flag included 13 horizontal stripes (most likely red and white or red, white, and blue) and the first form of the British Union Flag in the canton (Union Jack). It was flown at forts and on naval vessels as the flag of the Continental Army.
A famous early flag, the Sons of Liberty flag of 1765, featured only nine red and white stripes. Many 18th-century American colonial banners included various forms of “Don’t Tread on Me” coiled-rattlesnake flags, including some flown by military troops during the Revolutionary War. The rattlesnake and the “Don’t Tread on Me” motto were featured in the version carried by the Minutemen of Culpeper County, Virginia, as well as Virginia revolutionary Patrick Henry’s famous phrases “Liberty or Death.”
The Stars and Stripes was the first official national flag approved by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1777.
The layout of the stars was left unspecified, and flag crafters utilized a variety of formats. The flag’s designer, most likely Congressman Francis Hopkinson of Philadelphia, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, may have envisioned a ring of stars representing the new constellation.
Although the widely held idea that she designed the first Stars and Stripes and came up with the ring pattern is unproven, the pattern is now known as the “Betsy Ross flag.” Star rows (4-5-4 or 3-2-3-2-3) were standard, although there were many different versions. Finally, on September 11, 1777, at the Battle of the Brandywine, the new Stars and Stripes became part of the military colors, maybe for the first time.
