Serapis is a name given to an unconventional, early United States ensign flown from the captured British frigate Serapis.
This is the flag used on board the captured British ship "Serapis" in 1779, Captain John Paul Jones. This ship was captured following the famous sea battle between the "Serapis" and the "Bonhomme Richard" in which the latter's flag staff was blown away; the British Captain asked if Jones had struck his colors; and Jones replied "Struck, Sir? I have not yet begun to fight!"
The Serapis flag is also known as the "Franklin flag" due to the description given by Ambassador Franklin. It was featured on a 33в postage stamp issued in 2000, as a part of the U.S. Postal Service's Stars and Stripes series. The stamp was titled "John Paul Jones flag."
This flag, along with the First Navy Jack, is featured on the crest of the USS John Paul Jones (DDG-53).
