Trumbull Version Red Field With Pine Tree in Canton.
After the Battles of Lexington and Concord, Americans began to work on forcing the British out of Boston. On 16 and 17 June of 1775, they fortified a hill across from the city on Boston Harbor. The British bombarded them with naval cannons, then made their assault. This was the Battle of Bunker Hill. According to reports the British saw the Americans with a red flag. The famous Revolutionary War artist John Trumbull talked to eye-witnesses. He then painted a scene of the battle, showing the Continental flag as we know it today. The Continental Flag was the third Flag of New England, and is today the flag of Lincoln County, Maine.
This is an American made flag of our toughest, most durable nylon fabric. It has solid brass grommets. You won’t find a nylon flag with higher tensile and tear strength, yet it flies very well in the wind. It has excellent strength retention under UV exposure, and high resistance to UV fading. The colors are deeper, brighter and last over time, due to the aniline dyeing process. There is a one inch double edge fold with four rows of stitching on the fly edge. It has 1 1/2 inch reinforced stitching vertically at the fly corners, and 3 1/2 inch reinforced hem stitching (horizontal) at top of bottom of the fly.
