    The shortest-lived American flag in history. The 41-star American flag in 1889 was accurate for just 3 days. It came into being because the widely predicted north (39) and south (40) Dakota state introdution, making 40 stars, was swiftly followed by MontaƱa (41), creating the 41 star flag, and Washington (42), out-dating the 41 star flag, all within a 10 day period.

      Actually the US went from 38 stars to 43 stars on 4 July 1891 when stars representing Idaho, Montana, North & South Dakota, and Washington were all added to the flag.

      At any rate this flag has 50 stars.

    Is it not the flag of the USA?

    I give up. Been trying to find it all day, but the only flag I’ve found with 15 stripes was the 1794 version with only 15 stars.

    I have to assume it is not an American flag at all.
