Like many Revolution era flags, the Bennington features 13 stars and 13 stripes, symbolic of the 13 American colonies that were in a state of rebellion against Great Britain. The Bennington version is easily identified by a large '76' in the canton, recalling the year 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed. Another distinctive feature of the Bennington flag is the arrangement of the 13 stripes, with white being outermost (rather than red being outermost as in the current flag). Also, its stars have seven points each (instead of the current five) and the blue canton is taller than on other flags, spanning nine instead of seven of the thirteen stripes.
The Bennington flag is a popular version of the American flag, and many historic flag dealers carry it. The large '76' makes it easily identifiable as banner from the American Revolution, evoking Spirit of '76 nostalgia.

The Bennington Flag
My husband loved his Bennington Flag shirt from 1776 United. The shirts are great quality and we will be ordering again soon.
Great as usual
Great fit, and received in a timely manner in respect to shipping.
The screen print was great
The screen print was great but the t-shirt was a little flimsy. I would like to see a better grade of t-shirt. I love the subjects and themes you have chosen to put on your products. I will buy from you again.
Excellent quality, design, and value!
