Flag of Annapolis, MarylandSatellite view showing Annapolis, capital city of the State of Maryland in the United States, located about 48 km (30 mi) south of Baltimore at the mouth of the Severn River at Chesapeake Bay, a large estuary reaching inland from the Atlantic Ocean.

The town was founded on the north shore of the Severn River in 1649 by Puritan exiles from Virginia, the settlement was then known as Providence. This small town was the stage of some important events in American History. Kunta Kinte arrived in Annapolis as a slave, he is the central character in Alex Haley's book Roots: The Saga of an American Family. Actually the city became very wealthy through the slave trade.

In 1783 Annapolis became the temporary capital of the United States after the signing of the Treaty of Paris, and it was in Annapolis on 23 December 1783, that General Washington resigned his commission as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army. And in 1783, the Governor of Maryland commissioned John Shaw, a local cabinet maker, to create an American flag. The U.S. flag of today is based on John Shaw's design.

Today Annapolis' population counts about 38,000 souls.
