Marylanders can now purchase commemorative 15-star, 15-stripe American flags - replicas of the Star-Spangled Banner that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the National Anthem following the all-night British bombardment of Fort McHenry in 1814.

The U.S.A. made flags - featuring the official Star-Spangled 200 bicentennial logo - are available through Maryland small business F. W. Haxel in two versions: a printed nylon flag ($20); and a limited-edition, sewn nylon flag with appliqued tilted stars ($73.50). Proceeds benefit three nonprofit (501c3) organizations: The American Flag Foundation, Friends of Fort McHenrv and The Star-Spangled Banner Flag House.
