For example, the enormous 1814 garrison flag that survived a 25-hour bombardment by British troops at Baltimore’s Fort McHenry inspired Francis Scott Key to compose “The Star-Spangled Banner” and became our national anthem. This flag, referred to as the Battle of Fort McHenry Flag or the Star Spangled Banner Flag, is the oldest preserved American flag and is displayed at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. It is stored in a special 10-degree, low-oxygen, filtered light chamber and is periodically examined at a microscopic level.

Other American flags have been designed to deliver specific messages, including the “Gadsden” Flag, designed in 1775 by Christopher Gadsden that depicted a rattlesnake and the phrase, “Don’t Tread on Me” on a field of yellow. Colonel William Moultrie commissioned the flag that flew at the Battle of Sullivan’s Island in 1776, which became known as The Moultrie Flag. In 1818, Congress passed the third Flag Act that established a precedent of adding a new star to the flag for each state’s admission into the Union. The current version of the flag consists of fifty stars and has remained unchanged since 1959.
