THE HEMP HISTORY ROOM GUIDE

HEMP U.S. FLAGS.

The U.S. Constitution and Flag, two of our most cherished symbols were made of hemp before it was prohibited.
 

Betsy Ross made the first flag of the United States of America out of the finest, strongest fiber available, hemp fabric.  "It is also said that the finest laces of the olden days were always made of hemp in preference to any other fiber." -Herndon, p.154.
