The Cowpens flag, or 3rd Maryland flag, is an early version of the United States flag that meets the congressional requirements of the Flag Resolution of 1777. Like the Betsy Ross flag, the white stars are arranged in a circle on a blue field; but the circle consists of just 12 stars, with the 13th star in the center.


The famous Spirit of '76 painting by Archibald MacNeal Willard features the Cowpens flag (not the Betsy Ross design, which is similar)


This version of the US flag was said to have been carried by William Batchelor[2] of the 3rd Maryland Regiment at the Battle of Cowpens, January 17, 1781, and this arrangement of stars has come to be known as the "3rd Maryland design."

Cool piece

This is a cool little nod to history that I was ignorant to before purchasing. These patches all seem to be of good quality as well. G&C does a good job!

Absolute Must Have

When it comes to historical flags I am one heck of a sucker. Initially I was going to buy the George Washington Headquarters flag, but I fell for the Cowpens flag. As a side note, for Fallout fans this flag is a great thing to add on with other Fallout themed patches considering they used the Cowpens design in-game as the American flag in their alternative future.

Overall 10/10.

Beautiful patch

G & P is the place to go for historical and military patches. I’m always pleased. I’ve also purchased 2 -3’x5’ flags from them.
