    The 38 star flag was voted into the union on August 1 1876 and became official flag on the following July 4th .
    The thirty-eight star flag represents the addition of Colorado to the Union. Colorado was admitted on August 1st, 1876 and this flag became official on July 4th, 1877. Presidents Hayes, Garfield, Arthur, Cleveland, and Harrison all served under this flag. Colorado became known as the “Centennial State,” a result of becoming official just twenty-eight days after the centennial. The official star count for US flags in 1876 was the thirty-seven star flag. However, it was common for flag makers to produce anticipatory flags in advance of their official date, making the thirty-eight star flag—and for historical reasons, the thirteen star flag—the most common flags flown during the centennial celebrations.

    The thirty-eight star flag was official until July 4th, 1890, the time at which the forty-three star flag became official and began to represent the inclusion of North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Washington, and Idaho to the United States

    Beautiful, rare antique flag with museum framing with UP acrylic. Museum framing in a custom-made frame in our own frame shop. Comes with our Certificate of Authenticity. Historical Since 1990.
