United Tribes' flag: James Laurenson collection

This copy of the United Tribes' flag was made from a plate in a book of flags published in 1845 and held by the British Admiralty library in London. This version has a white rather than black border around the smaller St George's cross, but the stars are eight-pointed, as on the original flag.
