Rare 29-star United States flag with a medallion star pattern, marking Iowa's inclusion into the Union, circa 1846-1848. Stars are arranged in the more desirable medallion pattern, unlike the grid pattern of most 29-star flags, with the center star (representing the newest state added to the Union) titled to the 11:00 position. Iowa was admitted on 28 December 1846, and this flag became official on 4 July 1847, lasting only one year until 4 July 1848 after Wisconsin was added. Printed on glazed cotton with partial staff intact, intended for waving during parades, flag measures 6.5'' x 8.5''. A few spots of discoloration at center and light toning along edge. Integrity of fabric is still strong. Overall very good condition.
