13 Star 3' x 5' Nylon Betsy
Ross US FlagStyled after the thirteen-star flag created by Betsy Ross, this historic 3' x 5' nylon American classic has been recreated with embroidered stars and sewn stripes with brass grommets. In following with tradition, it is hand made in USA.
During the Revolutionary War, several patriots made flags for our new nation. Among them were Cornelia Bridges, Elizabeth (Betsy) Ross, and Rebecca Young, all of whom were from Pennsylvania, and John Shaw of Annapolis, Maryland.
Although Betsy Ross, the best known of these persons, made flags for 50 years, there is no proof that she made the first Stars and Stripes. It is known that she made flags for the Pennsylvania State Navy in 1777. The flag popularly known as the "Betsy Ross flag," which arranged the stars in a circle, did not appear until the early 1790's
