Rally 'Round the Flag
The Colonial Flag is the The Flag of Great Britain, which flew over the 13 American Colonies that were to become the first 13 United States, from 1707 to 1775.
On January 1, 1776, General George Washington's troops raised their new flag on the liberty pole at Prospect Hill in Cambridge, Massachusetts. General Washington called it the "The Grand Union Flag". This was the official flag of the 13 American Colonies on July 4, 1776 when the colonies declared their independence from England. For almost the entire first year of the American Revolution, the Grand Union Flag was the ensign of the struggling new "United States".
Old Glory, the stripes remain forever thirteen, yet the field of stars can change, representing the states in the Union.
