Betsy Ross Flag - USA Made - Outdoor 2x3,3x5,4x6,5x8 - Nylon Fully Sewn (USA Made)
$39.95 – $129.95
Betsy Ross Flag – Outdoor Nylon Fully Sewn
This Betsy Ross flag with embroidered or appliqué stars is made in America of the strongest nylon fabric. The stripes are sewn together, and the stars are sewn on (appliqued). This is NOT a printed flag. You won’t find nylon flags with higher tensile and tear strength. It has excellent strength retention under UV exposure, and high resistance to UV fading. These are deeper, brighter colors that last over time, due to the aniline dyeing process, with better wash-fastness and light-fastness than nylons of similar fabric construction.
One inch double edge fold around flag, with four rows of stitching on the fly edge. There is 1 1/2 inch reinforced stitching vertically at the fly corners, and 3 1/2 inch reinforced hem stitching (horizontal) at top of bottom of the fly. It has embroidered stars and sewn stripes.
The grommets are solid brass. Appliqued Star Fields on 4×6 ft, 5×8 ft all others are embroidered stars.
During the Revolutionary War our “official” flags were made by several people. In Pennsylvania, Betsy Ross made flags for 50 years, including the Pennsylvania State Navy in 1777. Our earliest records of the popular “Betsy Ross flag,” displaying the stars in a circle, seem to indicate it appeared in the 1790’s. This iconic design has come to symbolize the birth and early years of our nation.
The claims of the Betsy Ross flag were first brought to the attention of the public in 1870, by one of her grandsons, William J. Canby. He gave a talk a meeting of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, during which he stated:
“It is not tradition, it is a report from the lips of the principal participator in the transaction, directly told not to one or two, but a dozen or more living witnesses, of which I, myself, am one, though but a little boy when I heard it…. Colonel Ross, with Robert Morris and General Washington, called on Mrs. Ross and told her they were a committee of Congress, and wanted her to make a flag from the drawing, a rough one, which, upon her suggestions, was redrawn by General Washington in pencil in her back parlor. This was prior to the Declaration of Independence. I fix the date to be during Washington’s visit to Congress from New York in June, 1776 when he came to confer upon the affairs of the Army, the flag being no doubt, one of these affairs.”
