American Flag Stars Aligned in Column with Stripes Stencil


Description of the Flag


In 1912, two stars were added, representing Arizona and New Mexico, bringing the total number of stars to 48, arranged in 6 rows of 8 stars each. There were thirteen stripes representing the thirteen original colonies. This flag flew from 4 July, 1912, to 3 July, 1949. According to the US army quartermaster, an executive order was issued on 14 February 1912. Following the admission of New Mexico and Arizona, President Taft approved a Joint Army-Navy report recommending that the 48 stars be arranged symmetrically in six rows of eight stars each. This stencil is designed as per president Taft's executive order!
