Philadelphia Light Horse Troop - 3'X5' Nylon Flag

Designed for outdoor use, these beautiful long-wearing 3' x 5' Philadelphia Light Horse Troop flags are crafted from the highest quality 200-denier nylon. The colors are dyed into the fabric for superior penetration and color-fastness. Attaching to a pole is easy with the canvas header and brass grommets on the 3' side. The hem on the fly end of the flag features 4 lock stitched rows to help prevent premature fraying. The authentic designs are based on information from official sources.

The flag of the first American armed force, the Philadelphia City Cavalry.  The Light Horse of Philadelphia 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.  They remain today as the oldest of Americas armed forces.  They fought valiantly under this banner at the Battles of Trenton, Princeton, Brandywine, and Germantown.  It was also the first flag to have featured the Thirteen Stripes, each representing a colony.
