Design History: The Bedford Flag

The Bedford Flag – 1-Stop Design ShopThe Bedford Flag is the oldest intact American battle flag, representing a key part of U.S. history. Dating back to the early 1700s, this iconic design was passed down through generations and reportedly carried into the first battles of the Revolution. With its bold red silk, elegant damask pattern, and painted emblem, the flag combines visual interest with symbolic meaning. Despite lost fringe, it remains in remarkable condition at the Bedford Free Public Library.
