Source: "Flags to Color from the American Revolution."

On page 8, is the "Flag of the First Rhode Island Regiment, Continental Line." The colors are listed as "White field, stars, letters; light blue canton, scroll." The narrative for the flag says:

"The stars, probably based upon the starry seals of Portsmouth, 1676, and Providence, 1680, may in turn have inspired the new constellation adopted June 14, 1777. The flag now surviving in Rhode Island is 36 x 23" in size, however, smaller than the normal regimental flag."
On page 9, is the "Flag of the Second Rhode Island Regiment, Continental Line." The colors are listed as "White field, letters; light blue canton, anchor; dark blue rope, scroll, outline of stars; yellow stars."
"It is not known for certain which is the flag of the First Rhode Island Regiment and which is that of the Second, but scholars have argued for the ordering used here because it seems more probably that 'R. Island Regt' would be on the early flag."
