49 Star | Alaska | Silk American Flag | Framed | 13.5" x 17"
On January 3rd, 1959 Alaska was formally granted statehood placing the 49th star on our Flag. Executive Order of President Eisenhower dated January 3, 1959 - provided for the arrangement of the stars in seven rows of seven stars each, staggered horizontally and vertically.
49 star silk American flag, this flag is particularly rare because it was only made for 1 year. Alaska was made the 49th state in 1959 and Hawaii followed in 1960, so there was only a 1 year period when these flags were produced.
