Rare 13 Star American Flags Will Be On Display At Museum Of Rev War

06.14.19 | Terry Diener

Antique flag dealer and expert Jeff Bridgman has loaned the historic flags to the Philadelphia museum for display starting today, which is Flag Day. The flags feature 32 arrangements of 13 stars representing the 13 original Colonies.

There was no official pattern for the stars until 1912. Flag makers had previously arranged the stars however they wanted.

Flags from flag maker Sarah McFadden, known as the “Betsy Ross of New York,” will be on display.
