Francis Hopkinson of New Jersey, a naval flag designer, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence, designed the first official U.S. flag in 1777 for the Navy. Other iterations of the Star Spangled Banner, like the Betsy Ross flag with the stars arranged in a circle, arose in the following years, and as states were added, the design shifted slightly until July 4th, 1960. That was the date when the state of Hawaii was added to the Union and it was the birth of the flag we know today!
Painting the Stars and Stripes Mug can be easy, as the color scheme and design is already laid out for the artist, but consider using some grays, black, and varying shades to create texture, weathering, and depth on the flag mug pottery design!
The Stars and Stripes Mug has a wonderfully functional design, and its patriotic styling make a great gift for those who want to express their American pride!
