Flag of Easton, Pennsylvania
The Easton Flag is a banner used to represent Easton, Pennsylvania.
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.[nb 1] The flag was returned to the Easton library for safe-keeping when the company returned. The Easton Area Public Library still holds the flag.
- It is worth noting that US flags of this era had 15 stars and 15 stripes.
