Raritan Flag and Banner - Our Catalog

The Star Spangled Banner! This is the flag that Francis Scott Key saw when he watched the bombardment of Fort McHenry in the war of 1812. That sight caused him to write the poem that ultimately became our national anthem. Its the only US flag that had more than 13 stripes - it has 15 stars and 15 stripes, one for each state. You won't see this one often, but it holds a special place in our history!
