The Betsy Ross flag is an early design of the flag of the United States. The flag is popularly attributed to Betsy Ross and uses the common motifs of alternating red-and-white striped field with five-pointed stars in a blue canton. The flag was designed during the American Revolution and features 13 stars to represent the original 13 colonies. The distinctive feature of the Ross flag is the arrangement of the stars in a circle. Although some flag historians and revisionists do not accept the Betsy Ross design as the first American flag, the Betsy Ross story is accepted by most Americans. According to the traditional account, the original flag was made on July 4, 1776, when a small committeeincluding George Washington and relative George Rossvisited Betsy and discussed the need for a new American flag. Betsy accepted the job to manufacture the flag, altering the committee's design by replacing the six-pointed stars with five-pointed stars.
