Flown by the Rhode Islanders who fought in the American
Revolution, this flag was an important part of the colony’s
history. The Rhode Island flag consists of the White
Flag of Commonwealth, with a banner, an anchor, and a star
field. The anchor is a symbol of hope, which is also
expressed blatantly on the banner. The star field,
like most American ones, is in the top corner and has a star
for each of the Thirteen Colonies.
