Graphical History of the American Flag


A great infographic for America's Independence Day from Mike Wirth.  The graphical history of the American Flag shows a circular timeline of when changes were made over the years and when stars were added.  I love additional information Mike included like the official folding pattern and the state each star represents by showing them chronologically.  Makes a great poster!


  1. Very neat looking, though Maine didn't become a state until 1820, not 1795 as the graphic indicates.

    The 14th and 15th states were Vermont in 1791 and Kentucky in 1792.

  2. Is there a hi-res version?
