Introducing a new line of our flags called the Heritage Series. They will represent our most colorful and historical designs of American Flags. These will represent the era of 1776 to 1912. In these years there were no restrictions placed on designs. All this came to an end in 1912 at which time most modern design standards were put in place by the US Government.
There was never an official 22 star flag in history. Alabama the 22nd state entered the Union on 14 December 1819 followed quickly by Maine as the 23rd state on 15 March 1820 making then next official flag the 23 star flag. The few 22 star flags that were made were during the three months and a day period between the admission of Alabama and Maine, and few have survived intact. These started with stars arranged in horizontal rows of 6-5-6-5. Later it was modified by the addition of four more stars for a total of 26, indicating that this flag was used between 1819 and 1837, when the modifications ended, even though the canton contains room for additional stars. Flags that were converted or upgraded to keep the star count current are representative of the traits of American individualism, ingenuity and thrift - home made flags represented a commitment of time and materials for individual families, and updating them was an economical way to keep them current.
