Antique 13 Star American Flag, 3-2-3-2-3 Pattern, or Francis Hopkinson Pattern. 46 1/2 x 32 in., Worsted Wool with 13 hand-sewn, double-sided cotton stars, the fly is constructed of 13 hand sewn stripes. Although there is some intrigue and controversy surrounding the history of Francis Hopkinson's submission of designs to the Continental Congress, which included design of the first Great Seal and a representation of the American Flag, the 3-2-3-2-3 pattern of stars is also known to collectors as the Francis Hopkinson Pattern. The 3-2-3-2-3 pattern is one of the most common variations of 13 Star flags. In fact, when it comes to antique stars and stripes, it is much more common than the Betsy Ross configuration, which in reality is quite scarce.
