The first American flag was made in 1776. According to Betsy Ross, she sewed the first one with the stars and stripes pattern in the spring as the tides of revolution began to explode. However, in 1775, American ships in New England flew a white flag with a "Liberty Tree" in the middle. The year of 1775 would see several red and white stripped flags fly including the one with the snake in the center that's hissing the, "Don't Tread on Me" warning.
In January of 1776, the Grand Union flag stood on Prospect Hill. It sported the red and white striped pattern with the British Union Jack in the corner. By June of 1777, the Continental Congress adopted the first official flag of the newly formed United States. The Stars and Stripes was born.
