Williamsburg Off The Beaten Path: 49 reviews and 56 photos

by matcrazy1

These flags on flag poles, on my picture, were put close to the Visitor Center of the Colonial Williamsburg. Not at all off the beaten path but fairly easy to miss if you don't pay attention.

Each flag represents the state flag of the original 13 colonies. Some of them were very interesting. I would recommend adding some info by each flag for us foreigners who may not know the signifance of these flags.

Currently the 13 stripes in the American flag represent the original 13 colonies whereas the 50 states are represented by 50 stars.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
