The design of the Bennington Flag is believed to have been created by Captain Samuel Robinson, who was a colonel in the Vermont militia during the Revolutionary War. The flag was used during the Battle of Bennington, a pivotal battle in the Revolutionary War that took place in August 1777 in Bennington, Vermont.
The Bennington Flag was significant because it represented the unity of the thirteen colonies in their fight for independence from Great Britain. The U-shaped arrangement of the stars was meant to symbolize the strength of the “united” colonies.
