"Indian Peace" flag of 1803 - The U.S. government often presented the Stars and Stripes to friendly Indian nations. These "Indian Peace" flags displayed the U.S. Coat of Arms in the canton.
One unusual variation of the U.S. flag was a 26 star flag carried by western explorer John C. Frémont, who later became the first Republican candidate for President. Between the rows of stars in the canton of his flag was an eagle. The eagle held the usual arrows of war, but the olive branch of peace was replaced by the calumet, or peace pipe. He hoped that this would be accepted by the Indians he met in his travels as a token of his peaceful intentions.
