Additional Notes: The American 49-star flag was flown from July of 1959 to July 1960 (1 year use). Alaska added as a state. The arrangement of the stars in seven rows of seven stars each, staggered horizontally and vertically. The 49-Star flag was official for only one year, until July 4, 1960, when Hawaii achieved its statehood, and the United States went to the 50-Star flag.

A general guide in American Flag construction materials is that cotton flags were issued during WW2 and nylon flags were issued during the Korean War. Earlier flags then WW2 were typically made of a wool blend.
