Who made the first American Flag?
Francis Hopkinson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, is credited with making the first American flag. He was a member of the Continental Congress and helped design many of the early American flags. There is some debate over who actually made the first flag, as Betsy Ross is also often credited. However, most experts believe that it was Hopkinson who designed the flag and Ross who made it.
What we know is that the purpose of designing the American flag is to represent the 13 original countries along with 13 white stars on a blue field and 13 alternating red and white stripes. The earliest designed flag has circles to show equality among colonies.
