The official US flag for the year is the flag flown on July 4th Independence Day. Alaska joined the Union in early 1959. Hawaii joined in August of the same year. That meant for one year only, the U.S. Flag had 49 stars. The flag makers and the people didn’t want a flag that everyone knew was going to be used for one year and then become obsolete. Consequently, not many flag companies made them and not many people bought them. They are rare! This US flag is now referred to by collectors and history buffs as the Alaskan Heritage Flag.
