The 3x5' Nylon 49 Star flag is proudly made in America and is our most “recent historical" United States flag. Complete with a durable canvas heading and solid brass grommets, this nylon flag will fly beautifully for special occasions and ceremonies or for everyday use to honor the state known as “The Last Frontier".
Adding the 49th star to our United States flag honors the welcoming of Alaska into our Union. The 49 Star American flag design is the last design that was created before the 50 Star design (1960) we currently honor and respect. Alaska was granted Statehood on January 3rd, 1959 with the change of design becoming official on July 4th, 1959. This 49 Star design lasted only one year and also marks President Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961) as the only Commander in Chief to serve under this flag edition.
