"Medallion" Centennial Flag (1867). The "Betsy Ross" circle of 13 stars are in the inner ring to identify the original 13 colonies, and an outer circle of 24 stars identify the states that have joined the union since that time. This flag was one of many that were made to celebrate the upcoming First Centennial.
