"Grand Union Flag"

The "Grand Union Flag", or the "Continental Colours", (also known as the "Congress Flag", the "Cambridge Flag", and the "First Navy Ensign") was the first national flag of the United States of America. First hoisted on December 3, 1775 by naval officer John Paul Jones, the flag was used heavily by the Second Continental Congress of the United States, as well as by Commander George Washington in his Continental Army during the early years of the American Revolutionary War. Similar to the current U.S. flag, the Grand Union Flag has 13 alternating red and white stripes, representative of the Thirteen Colonies. The upper inner corner, or canton, features the Union Jack, or flag of the Kingdom of Great Britain, of which the colonies were subjects. (©Wikipedia)
