- Betsy Ross American USA Flag - Tea Stained Cotton 13 Embroidered Stars 17" x 28"
This is a 1776 Betsy Ross replica of the first official American flag. This 28"' wide and 17 high flag is made with embroidered stars and quality heavy cotton stripes made of red/maroon, white/cream Tea Stained and blue heavy weave cotton fabric. The Betsy Ross design was commissioned by George Washington in 1776. Betsy accepted the job to manufacture the flag, altering the committee's design by replacing the six-pointed stars with five-pointed stars. Of course, the 13 stars represented the 13 original colonies. The flag continues to be one of the most popular symbols of the American Revolution.
