This 3-by-5-foot cotton First Stars and Stripes flag (Betsy Ross) comes with brass grommets. This flag has sewn stripes and embroidered stars. Flag is 100 percent made in the U.S.A.
While Americans recognize and celebrate collective achievements such as the writing of the Declaration of Independence, victory in 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.
