By law, a star is added to the U.S.A. flag on the Fourth
of July following the admission of a State(s) to the Union. Shown here are the 27
star fields and the state(s) bringing about these changes. Also listed is
the duration of time these flags were the "official" U.S.A. flag.
Many people believe the first official flag was the "Betsy Ross"...13
states in a circle. But the first documented U.S.A. flag was
the staggered star pattern shown. "Artistic interpretation"
of the earlier star patterns also resulted in many variations we are
unable to illustrate here. Whatever your reason for flying an
"older" flag, it is important to note that no U.S.A. flag ever becomes
obsolete. Each is still a legal flag and is entitled to the
same respect shown the current flag. It is your choice to decide
if one of these is appropriate for you to display.
