Old Glory is a nickname for the U.S.'s most treasured historical artifacts, which is now part of the collection at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. The original Old Glory was presented to a young Captain Driver by his mother and some young ladies in Salem, Massachusetts sometime in the 1820's. It's a large flag measuring 10 ft. by 17 ft., heavily constructed and designed to be flown from a ship's mast. It originally had 13 stars and symbolic of its nautical purpose, includes a small anchor sewn in the corner of its blue canton.
This 3 ft. x 5 ft. United States flag is fully sewn, made of rich traditional 2-ply heavyweight 100% cotton bunting. Vibrant alternating red and white sewn stripes with densely embroidered white stars on a blue canton field. These American made flags are absolutely beautiful! Finished with two rows of stitching on the top and bottoms sides, four rows of stitching on the fly end, with a heavy duck header and solid brass durable grommets. Made in the USA.
