   38 STARS, COLORADO STATEHOOD, 1876-1889, SCATTERED STAR POSITIONING:


 

Description:
38 star American national parade flag, printed on coarse, glazed cotton. The configuration of the canton, which contains three consecutive squares of stars, is lent additional folk quality through their scattered vertical alignment. Note how they point in various directions. The 38th state, Colorado, received its statehood on August 1st, 1876. This was the year of our nation�s centennial of independence from Great Britain. Although 37 was the official star count for the American flag in 1876, flag-making was a competitive venture, and no one wanted to be making 37 star flags when others were making 38�s. It is for this reason that 38 and 13 stars (to represent the original 13 colonies) are the two star counts most often seen at the Centennial International Exposition, the six-month long, World�s Fair event, held in honor of the anniversary, in Philadelphia. The 38 star flag became official in 1877 and was generally used until the addition of the Dakotas in 1889. Mounting: The solid walnut frame has a gilded liner and dates to the period between 1860 and 1880. The flag has been hand-stitched to 100% cotton rag mat. Spacers keep the textile away from the glass, which is u.v. protective.
