In 1960, Hawaii became the 50th of the United States of America.  The first 13 states joined together on June 14, 1777.  Each time a state was added, a star was added on to the American flag and a new, large flag was printed. However, each incoming state desired a parade flag with the correct number of stars for their Independence Day celebration.  These were printed in limited editions on fabric that was not created to last long.  The existing states had no reason to retire their parade flags and purchase new ones, so the statehood flags printed during this period are highly collectible.
