Continental Congress Flag for the Fourth Capital of the United States - York, Pennsylvania
The heritage flag of York's cameo as America's Capital City takes its design from the official flag of Washington DC. However the colours stem from the original White Rose of the House of York in England with its blue background. Coincidentally George Washington's ancestors originally came from "Old York, England." As fate would have it George Washington was "crowned" as the first president in"New York, America."
