Excerpt from The Little Book, of the Flag
Nearly thirty years. After the voyage of Henry Hudson, a company of Swedes made a settlement on the Delaware River. This had been planned by the great Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden.
That colony will be the jewel of my kingdom, he said; but the Lion of the North was Slain in battle, and his twelve-year-old daughter Chris tina had become queen. That is why the loyal Swedes named their little fortification Fort Christiana, and over it they raised the ﬂag of their country, a blue banner with a yellow cross.
