About Betsy Ross' 13 Star American Flag

Named for flag maker Elizabeth “Betsy” Ross, the 13 star flag has been in use since 1777 and is a symbol of the Revolutionary War Era. Although the flag is named and attributed to Betsy Ross, the actual origin of the flag's design is still up for debate.

Betsy Ross was an upholsterer from Philadelphia. Her grandson, William Canby, claimed that Betsy was the creator of the flag that was adopted by Congress as the national flag on June 14, 1777 - and Betsy’s daughter, niece and granddaughter backed up Canby's claims. However, there is a lack of evidence to prove that it was really Betsy who created the 13 star American flag. Many historians dispute Canby's claim, with some believing that it was in fact Francis Hopkinson who designed the flag.

Despite the ongoing debate on who truly created this early American flag, the 13 Star American Flag has been widely attributed to Betsy Ross. In fact, the flag is often referred to as the "Betsy Ross Flag."

An exceptionally well made flag and affordable too. I couldn't wait to get her flying proud and beautiful. Neighbors are already complimenting on its beauty. No doubt that my betsy beats any other I have for quality and workmanship. One can see the pride in every stitch.

Very nice flag
This is a colorful, well made flag. I can fly it proudly, especially during the month of July.
Specific factors:
I am pleased with the flag I ordered and especially with the prompt attention to the order. It arrived as needed. Thank you. I just wish you had a smaller size of the Revolutionary flag that could be placed at the grave sites of veterans of that war.
Specific factors:
I've bought from other flag sites across the spectrum. Annin flags being by far my previous favorite. However, upon getting my Betsy Ross, I was pleasently surprised to find even better quality stitching, nylon, grommets, and header than I was expecting to find. Along with the amazing flag, Gettysburg's flag and accessory selection is vast and diverse. I think I'll be going back to Gettysburg Flag works every time for more flags and other items now.
