Historic Flags


The First Continental Regiment Flag

???In the early days of the Revolutionary War, each military unit chose its own flag. The banner of the First Continental Regiment, composed of Pennsylvania Militia, is one of the earliest in use. It was displayed at Cambridge, Massachusetts, in the summer of 1775 and was carried through the war. The original of this historic fla is preserved today in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. In the process of renovating it for bicentennial display, experts recently discovered that the exposed side of the flag was actually the "back." The flag has been in accurately illustrated and described in reference books for more than 100 years. Our flag is based on the "new" information an may differ from previous illustrations.
