Bicentennial Flag MemorialWith the signing of the Declaration of Indepenence, the Grand Union was automatically promoted to the status of a national banner and at the same time rendered obsolete. The British ties were snapped and the crosses of St. Andrew and St. George in the canton of the Grand Union became an anachronism, as well as an infuriating reminder of the oppressive British government. After much discussion and delay, a more appropriate flag, the Stars and Stripes, was adopted on June 14, 1777.
