I know this is getting into a bit of detail but I am stumped for an explanation and thought I would ask here. Most stars are placed point up especially on everything after 1912. I have come across a star pattern that has me puzzled. There is a very rare star pattern for a 25 star flag called a Sea Ensign. I assume it is for Navy vessels. The 25 star flag existed less than a year and I believe the normal star field layout was a 5 x 5 square. Here is a drawing of the 25 star sea ensign. I am accepting that this flag probably existed but have no confirmation of that. Looking at the design, I am puzzled about the way the middle star is oriented at an angle. Is there any reason the star would be oriented like that on purpose?
