Original United States Flag, issued after the admission of the State of Colorado

The 38th state joined the union on August 1, 1876 (thereafter often called the “Centennial State”). This flag measures approximately 17 x 23 1/2”, printed on what appears to be silk; some stains, minor fading and fraying; very good. Probably an early example: 34 of the stars are arranged on the blue background in a circle, an additional star in each corner. The official flag adopted on July 4th, 1877 and in use for the next 13 years arranged the representative stars in horizontal rows of 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars/ 7 stars/ 8 stars; with the standard red and white stripes representing the 13 original states.
