The first American Armed Forces flag

The Philadelphia Light Horse flag was the first American Armed Forces flag started in the City Cavalry, Philadelphia. The Light Horse of the city of Philadelphia was established alongside the Continental Congress, as the first Colonial troop without ties to the British. They served as a volunteer force under Congress to the Colonies. They remain today as the oldest Americas Armed Forces. They fought valiantly under this flag at the Battles of Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine and German Town. It was also the first flag to have featured the Thirteen Stripes, each representing a colony.

As of October 2014, the troop had 35 active members.
