This replica Star-Spangled Banner flag accurately represents the 30 x 42-foot banner that flew over Fort McHenry and inspired Francis Scott Key to write "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Made entirely by hand, bearing fifteen stars and fifteen stripes, the replica Star-Spangled Banner flag was created by over 1,000 Maryland Historical Society volunteers in the summer of 2013 using authentic fabric and hand stitching techniques, just like Mary Pickersgill in the summer of 1813.
The flag gained international media attention for The Maryland Historical Society and its partners in commemoration of the bicentennial of the War of 1812 and the National Anthem.
