|This flag was flown by General Washington during his winter encampment at Valley Forge and probably dates to 1775. General Washington had a personal protection guard called the “Life Guard.” It consisted of a few hand-picked men from each colony and this special guard carried these colors. His personal flag was with him wherever he went — saw the same action as he did. The original flag of faded blue silk is 27-1/2″ by 35-1/2″ and was kept for a time inWashington’s family. The flag itself was donated to the Valley Forge Historical Society from a descendant of George Washington.
