Flag Description

Brandywine Flag (1777). As depicted in the postage stamp, the flag is red bearing a stars and stripes canton, 7 white stripes and a white canton bearing 13 red eight-pointed stars in rows of 4-5-4. It is said to be a militia unit color used at the Battle of Brandywine. It should be noted that minor differences in flags details, such as relative stripe widths or exact placement of stars, have been regularized by the Postal Department.
Dave Martucci, 17 February 1998


An early interpretation of the "stars and stripes" is found in the canton of the still existing red silk division color carried by Captain Robert Wilson's Company, 7th Pennsylvania Regiment of 1777. According to family tradition, this flag was carried at Brandywine on September 11, 1777 - about three months after the Continental Congress resolution had defined the flag of the United States.
