Washington Headquarters Flag, George Washington 1775 Valley Forge Headquarters Flag
13 Stars on a blue field was the post flag of George Washington.
US Navy Union Jack (June 14, 1777 – May 1, 1795)
This flag was used to signal the presence of the Commander-In-Chief of the Continental Armies, George Washington. It accompanied him, and was displayed near his personal tent or building. The original is believed to be the earliest surviving 13-star American flag. It is unique due to its 6-pointed stars and it appears that it was designed by Washington himself. Washington wore three silver six-pointed stars, and a blue sash across his chest, indicating his status as Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army.
