Philadelphia Light Horse Troops Flag

This canton is the earliest known insance of the thirteen stripes being used on an American flag. In the center of the flag is a blue shield bearing a golden knot from which radiate thirteen golden scrolls like the ends of as many strips of ribbon, a very early example of the idea expressed by the motto: "E pluribus unum".
