Another version of America's National Flag, The Bauman Flag dates to 1791. Speculated to have been designed by American Artillery Officer Sebastian Bauman of The 2nd New York Artillery, it was supposedly flown over American battle lines during The Siege of Yorktown, Virginia - during The Revolution. Unlike the traditional 13 Stripe design of 7 Red and 6 White, the pattern was reversed. The Blue Canton contained 13-White Stars in the then official 3 by 2 vertical row pattern. The Bauman Flag would also be credited as being the first National Colors to be published (engraved), for Newspapers of The Era (making it the first National symbol seen on a wide scale by most Americans).
