One thought on “Historical United States Flags And What They Mean

  1. The consensus among historians is that New Jersey Continental Congressman Francis Hopkinson designed the American flag. (See: Leepson, Marc. “Flag: An American Biography.” St. Martin’s Griffin. 2005. p. 33.) Furthermore, the Wikipedia article on Francis Hopkinson states that he designed two flags — one for the United States and one for the U.S. Navy. Ironically, Hopkinson’s Navy flag became the preferred National flag. The Wikipedia articles on (1) Betsy Ross and (2) the Betsy Ross Flag contain new research from the 2010s on Mrs. Ross’ flag-making role. Earl P. Williams, Jr., U.S. flag historian (paleovexillologist)
