18. The Centennial Era The Centenary of the U.S.




Overlapping the Westward Expansion of the United States was the centenary of the United States. Celebrated nationwide, the centenary was the theme of the Centennial International Exhibition, which was successfully held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This was the first "World Fair" and it offered the nation a rich opportunity to see a whole host of different flags.


The U.S. began the centennial year with a flag bearing 37 stars, but statehood for Colorado Territory was looming on the horizon and it offered a chance for both entrepreneurs and artists alike to design new star fields bearing 38 stars instead of the original 37.   


Presented here are 37 and 38-star flags appropriate to the Centennial Era, the last in which the United States flag retained its "Folk Art" quality. After the 38-star flag, most flags would bear their stars in horizontal rows, which was an arrangement favored by large manufacturers.
