About Your Flag

Our First Flag Meets the Blue Jean: On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed the Flag Resolution which stated: "Resolved, That the flag of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new constellation. The resolution did not specify any particular arrangement, number of points, nor orientation for the stars and the arrangement or whether the flag had to have seven red stripes and six white ones or vice versa

 

Just as the flag has evolved and withstood the wear and tear of time, so has an American icon, the blue jean. While invented by Jacob W. Davis in partnership with Levi Strauss & Co. in 1871 and patented by Jacob W. Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873, the term "blue jeans" had been long in use for various garments (including trousers, overalls, and coats), constructed from blue-colored denim. Blue jeans evolved from a practical solution to protect the laboring limbs of workers to a style suiting just about every demographic. The garment has fit the thighs of miners, farmhands, cowboys, rebels, hippies, rockers, hip-hop artists, fashionistas and businesspeople alike.

 

Your flag will be a tribute to the original Star Spangled Banner and the blue jean, exemplifiying the ideals on which the United States was founded. We are our most beautiful when we are able to bring our individual fabrics together. Just as every strip of denim in your flag plays a vital role in the overall aesthetic of the piece, so does the contribution of each individual American citizen to the strength of our nation.
