This American Flag weathervane depicts the very first flag of our emerging nation, 13 white stars on a blue background surrounded by red and white stripes. On June 14, 1777, the Continental Congress resolved that the the flag of the United States would be 13 stripes, alternating red and white, with 13 white stars on a blue background representing a new constellation.The 13 stars and stripes represent the initial 13 colonies of the New World. This historic vane is a perfect way to show your patriotism and serve as a conversation piece as you sit outside your home and wow your neighbors with your hand-crafted vane and knowledge of colonial history.
For a fun party idea, invite your guests to name the original 13 colonies that formed the United States. If they get that with no problem, ask if they know the order in which they became states. If you need a hint, they are Delaware (December 7, 1787), Pennsylvania (December 12, 1787), New Jersey (December 18, 1787), Georgia (January 2, 1788), Connecticut (January 9, 1788), Massachusetts (February 6, 1788), Maryland (April 28, 1788), South Carolina (May 23, 1788), New Hampshire (June 21, 1788), Virginia (June 25, 1788), New York (July 26, 1788), North Carolina (November 21, 1789), and Rhode Island (May 29, 1790).
