The 3x5’ 15-Star United States Flag is known as the Fort McHenry Flag and inspired the 1814 penning of the United States National Anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, as we know it today. In 1818, Congress proclaimed that for each state that is added going forward, one star would be added and that the number of 13 stripes would remain to symbolize the 13 original colonies. Constructed of lightweight yet durable nylon, this 15-Star United States Flag features appliqued stars, sewn stripes and is finished with a white canvas heading and two brass grommets.
In addition to the 3x5’ 15-Star United States Flag, Carrot-Top Industries also offers many historic flags of the United States with the vibrant colors of today. Our Antiqued United States flags are made of 100% cotton and feature a tea-stained coloring to add to the historical style with the heading and grommets finishing for short-term, outdoor use.
