The Betsy Ross flag is a reconstructed early design for the flag of the United States, which is conformant to the Flag Act of 1777 and has red stripes outermost and stars arranged in a circle. These details elaborate on the 1777 act, passed early in the American Revolutionary War, which specified 13 alternating red and white horizontal stripes and 13 white stars in a blue canton. It was once widely believed that, shortly after the 1777 act, upholsterer and flag maker Betsy Ross produced a flag of this design.[1]: 107  In truth, this flag would have been unknown at the time of the Revolutionary War according to Grace Cooper, a former flag historian at the Smithsonian Institution. Cooper dates the earliest appearance of this flag as 1792 but with six-pointed stars.[2] Configuration with red stripes outermost and five-point stars is now standard for U.S. flags, although the stars are now arranged in horizontal rows.
