The 1776 Gostelowe Battle Flag inscribed with an arm in armor with a drawn sword in its hand. The motto on the original standard, and seen here on the ribbon, is "Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God."
Major Jonathan Gostelowe listed 13 standards, or regimental flags, in an inventory he conducted in 1778 for the Continental Army. Design of these flags is attributed to John Henderson, and they flew with the 13 different regiments of Pennsylvania. Some of the designs are lost to history, while others, like the "No. 10" here, are beautiful examples of the themes of liberty and resistance used in colonial times.
