I was watching the news today and spotted a very strange flag behind this talking head. It appears to be a U.S. flag with 45 stars arranged mostly in a circular pattern, but it doesn't look like the official 45 star flag from 1896.
Is it some rare version of the 45 star flag? Is it a political statement? Unfortunately I didn't catch the name of the talking head nor did I think to take a picture of who it was. I was too interested in the flag.
Below is the picture I took:
(I was unsure if this was the correct place to ask, but I didn't know where else it would be. If there is a better stack for it, please let me know.)
