The Middle Colonies Flag of the 13 Rebel Colonies represents colonies of New Jersey, Delaware, New York and Pennsylvania. However only the white stripes represent these states.
This flag is a post historical flag. The intention is to enhance the memory by giving an extra layer of definition to this area. Every student in the United States has to learn about the three colonial regions: New England, Middle and Southern. This flag is a tangible political token and reminds us that history is always being reinterpreted and rewritten.
