Flag of Easton, Pennsylvania facts for kids
The Easton flag is a banner used to represent Easton, Pennsylvania.
The flag is designed differently from more common Flags of the United States in that it has 13 (8-pointed) stars in a blue field, with 13 stripes in the canton.
According to local legend, the flag was hoisted when the Declaration of Independence was publicly read in Easton, 8 July 1776.
The flag was used as a company flag under Captain Abraham Horn in the War of 1812, and some suspect that the design may only date from this era. The flag was returned to the Easton library for safe-keeping when the company returned. The Easton Area Public Library still holds the flag.
