Flag for Americans born on the Pacific Ocean

The flag for Americans born in the Pacific Ocean uses the colours navy blue and white.  It is a simple flag with a rising white diagonal and Betsy Ross Canton in the honorable canton position.  In the 1800s and early part of the 1900s several hundred Americans were born at sea in the Pacific Ocean as intercontinental travel by ship was slow and the primary means of long distance transport.
