Styled after the thirteen-star flag created by Betsy Ross in 1776, this historic American classic has been recreated using 100% domestic cotton cloth textured with an authentic feel.
The flag features appliqued stars of distinctive shapes and stitched stripes. The specialty fabric is colored with hues of red, white and blue that simulate the natural dyes used in the 18th century America.
While Americans recognize and celebrate collective achievements such as the writing of the Declaration of Independence, victory of the Revolutionary War, or the landing of a man on the Moon- it is individual accomplishment that is cherished the most. The “stars” of the aforementioned events- Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Neil Armstrong-outshine the collective constellation. One person’s contribution can define the course and meaning of history.
When we view the flag, we think of liberty, freedom, pride, and Betsy Ross. The American flag flies on the moon, sits atop Mount Everest, is hurtling out in space. The flag is how America signs her name.
It is no surprise that Betsy Ross has become one of the most cherished figures of American History.
