Our Philadelphia Light Horse Flags are constructed of durable nylon fabric for long-lasting color outdoors. Finished with a heavy-duty canvas heading, solid brass grommets, and four rows of reinforced stitching on the fly end, our flags withstand the most extreme weather conditions. 100% Made in U.S.A.
The Philadelphia City Cavalry, the first American armed force, was established alongside the Continental Congress, as the first Colonial troop without ties to Britain. They outfitted themselves and served the Colonies as a volunteer force under Congress and remain today as the oldest of Americas armed forces. They fought valiantly under this banner at the Battles of Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine, and Germantown. This was also the first flag to have featured the Thirteen Stripes, each representing a colony.
