23
The Betsy Ross Flag
  • Since there was no official flag during the first
    year of the United States, there were a great
    number of homespun flag designs. This flag is
    without question the most well known of those.
    There are many reasons why this flag is confused
    with the first official U.S. flag

24
The First Official United States Flag
  • This 13-Star Flag became the Official United
    States Flag on June14th, 1777 and is the result
    of the congressional action that took place on
    that date. Much evidence exists pointing to
    Congressman Francis Hopkinson as the person
    responsible for its design. The only President to
    serve under this flag was George Washington. This
    Flag was to last for a period of 18 years.
  • Each star and stripe represented a Colony of
    which there were thirteen, united nearly one year
    earlier by the Declaration of Independence. The
    thirteen Colonies are listed below with the date
    that each ratified the Constitution and became a
    State.

25
The Star Spangled Banner, the 15 Star Flag
  • This Flag became the Official United States Flag
    on May 1st,1795. Two stars were added for the
    admission of Vermont (the 14th State on March
    4th, 1791) and Kentucky (the 15th State on June
    1st, 1792, and was to last for 23 years. The five
    Presidents who served under this flag were
    George Washington (1789-1797), John Adams
    (1797-1801), Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809), James
    Madison (1809-1817), and James Monroe
    (1817-1825).
