The Betsy Ross Flag

George Washington, Robert Morris and Betsy Ross are credited with the circular design around 1776. The Congress did not specify an arrangement for the stars in the canton, as a result there are many variations in the flags that followed until 1912.  The Betsy Ross Flag remains one of the most popular versions to be displayed and remembered as a flag used in the War for Independence. On 14 June 1777. The Continental Congress resolved, “That the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes alternating red and white; that the Union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation.”
