All that remains from this flag are silk fragments featuring a stylized version of the Arms of the State of New York. The inscription along the bottom reads, "THE PRICE OF LIBERTY IS ETERNAL VIGILANCE." In the 1960s the fragment was sandwiched between two layers of nylon netting sized to approximate the flag's original dimensions. The measurements reflect the overall size of the netting.
