Betsy Ross Flags and Banners
Nike recently canceled the release of a new sneaker that featured the historic 13-star “Betsy Ross flag,” reportedly at the urging of former NFL Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who claimed the flag represents a racist era of American history. Kaepernick is best known for kneeling during the national anthem when he played for the San Francisco 49ers.
The Betsy Ross flag is an early design of the flag of the United States, popularly – but probably incorrectly – attributed to Betsy Ross. The Betsy Ross flag uses the common motifs of alternating red-and-white striped fields with five-pointed stars in a blue canton. Grace Rogers Cooper noted that the first documented usage of this flag was in 1792. The Betsy Ross flag features 13 stars to represent the original 13 colonies with the stars arranged in a circle.
AmericanFlags.com proudly features Betsy Ross flags in a variety of popular sizes and materials and urges all of those who believe in free speech to proudly display the Betsy Ross flag!
