In 1908, one star was added, representing Oklahoma, bringing the total number of stars to 46. There were thirteen stripes representing the thirteen original colonies.

I recently ordered some inexpensive polyester flags for my classroom. One of them was a 46 star U.S. flag with this
unusual pattern. The pattern is basically a staggered 48 star pattern, minus 2 stars.

That 46 flag looks like somebody just added a star to the last line of a 45-star flag canton.
