Other Details

The famed "Grand Union" flag hoisted near Washington's headquarters at Cambridge on January 2, 1776 turned out to be similar to same flag the East India Company had used, on the other side of the world since 1701. The design is essentially a red ensign (minus the X of St. Patrick at that time) with the red field divided into 13 red-and-white stripes: the same pattern as the later United States flag, once the canton changed to "a new constellation".
