General Information

John Paul Jones Flag

At the Battle of Flamborough Head, US Navy Captain John Paul Jones captured the Serapis, but his own ship, the Bonhomme Richard sank, and her ensign had been blown from the mast into the sea during the battle.

Jones, now commanding the Serapis without an ensign, sailed to the island port of Texel, which was run by the neutral United Provinces.

The Continental Flag is believed to have been carried at the Battle of Bunker Hill.
