Betsy Ross Hat
Once the war started, it was decided a new flag was needed. One that would represent these "united states" as an "independent" nation. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress declared that the nation’s flag will be "thirteen stripes alternating red and white; that the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field". Every year our country celebrates this day as "Flag Day". Since congress did not stipulate the arrangement of the stars, there were many variations. There was the original Betsy Ross; designed by George Washington. The Bennington boldly displayed ’76’. The 3rd Maryland Regiment flew their own interpretation. Each flag was different, but each represented a people united in their belief of becoming a free and independent nation.
