The Bedford flag is considered the oldest flag in the United States and is from Bedford, Massachusetts as the name suggests. The flag is more square in shape than traditional flags (3x3' rather than 3x5' proportion). The flag has a crimson background with an armored soldier's arm and sword in the foreground. The arm and sword were common symbols in European Heraldry in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. A ribbon containing the Latin phrase "Vince Aut Morire," meaning Conquer or Die, drapes around the sword. It is thought to be the flag carried by the Bedford Minuteman in 1775.
