View Full Version : George Washington's flag idea

When George Washington entrusted or hired Betsy Ross to design the flag of the country, he wanted her to make the stars with six points, but because it was easier to make a five pointed star , that's the one that started a nation.
I'm not sure if it was a triangle over an inverted triangle or not that he wanted, but it raises the question, if America would have went with this six pointed star, would the rest of the world also have gravitated to the 6 pointed star, also would Israel have then chose a 5 pointed star for their flag, wanting to be different from the rest of the world?
