The first “Official” flag to be recognized by a “foreign warship”, Ft. Independence was constructed in Boston Harbor (it was also known as “Castle William”). The traditional “National Colors”, featured 13-White Stars arranged somewhat “haphazardly”. The British Warship HMS “Alligator” fire a salute of 13-guns in recognition.
