The flag is 3’x5′ and made from a premium 100 denier polyester. It has a white header with two grommets. There are four rows of stitches on the fly and two rows on the top, bottom, and header side. The image is screen printed and appears on both sides.
This flag was reportedly designed by George Washington’s military secretary, Col. Joseph Reed. It was ordered that all ships in the Massachusetts navy flag this as their ensign.
3’x5′ flags are 3 feet x 5 feet, 36 inches by 60 inches, 91 cm by 152 cm, 1 yard by 1.7 yards. This is the most common size flag you see hanging on porches, small flag poles, hanging at festivals, and inside of bars and restaurants.
