The Brandywine Flag

The Brandywine Flag is an early version of the “stars and stripes” found in the canton of the still existing red silk division color carried by Captain Robert Wilson’s Company, 7th Pennsylvania Regiment of 1777. The flag is bearing a stars and stripes canton, 7 white stripes and a white canton bearing 13 red eight-pointed stars in rows of 4-5-4.  According to family tradition, this flag was carried at Brandywine on September 11, 1777, about three months after the Continental Congress resolution had defined the flag of the United States.
