A flag that arose in the colonies as they sought to separate
themselves from the British Empire, the Bunker Hill Flag
was a distinct new banner raised and flown at the Battle
of Bunker Hill. It still contained St. George’s
cross in the canton, but the color of the field was changed
to blue. It was also one of the first American flags
to include the Pine Tree, which would become a lasting symbol
of New England and the Colonies.
