A Gallery Of Patriot Flags

Stars And Stripes
     Illustrated In The Berlin Almanac


   This variation of the Stripes With Union Of Stars, with the alternating red, blue, then white stripes, was included as an illustration in the Berlin Almanac published by Matthias Sprengel in 1784.

  J. Carlton Jones included this flag in his collection in 1975, but his version shows eight-point stars rather than the five-point stars used by Sprengel.
