Most of us think of a flag as a symbol of our nation. But did you realize that a flag may be used to identify a state, a city, a military service, a regiment, a single person, or even a business company? If you wanted to design and make up a flag, you could have one for your club or your own family! In ancient times, flags weren't made out of cloth. Some were made of carved poles, letters, or pieces of armor. The Egyptians used fans of feathers as a "flag" to symbolize the pharaohs. Probably the earliest uses of flags were to identify the camp or position of a leader in battle. The first cloth type of flags were used by the Romans and were called "vexilla", or cal- vary flags. A vexillium was carried like a banner at the end of a spear, during the Middle Ages a flag of this form was called a "gonfanon" or a "gonfalon". In ancient times too, the knights used to have a kind of flag called a "pennon" which had many streamers attached and identified the knight in battle. After a heoric deed, his king would cut off some of the tails and raise the knight to a higher grade. The flags became square-ended (such as we have now) when all the tails were removed. This was the beginning of regimental flags for military groups. The original flag of England was a red cross of St. George on a white background. In 1606 when England and Scotland were united, the St. George flag was combined with the flag of St. Andrew of Scotland, which was blue with an X- shaped cross. The oldest national flag whose design has not been changed is that of Denmark, which was originated in 1219. The United States flag was created as the result of a resolution passed by the Third Continental Congress on June 14,1777. It said: "That the Flag of the United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white, that the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field." The size, number of points, arrangement of stars, direction of stripes were not described, so the flag really had to be "designed". As new states joined the union, Congress passed acts to allow changes in the flag. The latest change was when the 50th star was added to the flag for Hawaii on July 4, 1960.
