The "Stars and Stripes" was designed by Betsy Ross in May 1776. It became the official American Flag on June 14, 1777 by an Act of the Continental Congress. Over the next 225 years, the American flag became the very symbol of our nation's strength and unity. It remains a source of pride and inspiration for millions of citizens. And it has been a prominent icon in our nation's history.
My office can provide you with an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol. This makes a perfect gift to commemorate a birthday, holiday, or other notable occasion. Flags are available in either nylon or cotton and come in sizes from 3'x5' to 5'x8'. All flags flown over the Capitol are made in America.
