A close-up of the flag - not all stars are visible.

Another close-up - likewise, the entire circle is not visible.

Grand Union Flag - The Union Jack’s inclusion in this flag, was intended to demonstrate the colonists’ desire to remain within the British Empire. (The war had started in April 1775, over a year prior to the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.) They had hoped that the British would redress their grievances, and that independence would not be necessary.
