A Brief History of Unusual American Flags

Celebrating Flag Day 2015

The American flag we now know wasn’t the first and only American flag. In fact, there were several different kinds during and right after the American Revolution, with some signifying individual groups (e.g,, the Sons of Liberty) and others trying to find a way to add new state stars with ease (an important factor given they were all hand sewn).

Below are a few of the more notable flags that have flown in our nation’s name throughout the years.
