Since the 1963 5¢ Flag Over the White House issue, the USPS has continued to picture the American flag on its most commonly used stamp - the first-class definitive. Printed in sheets, coils, and booklets, these stamps carry the majority of our nation's mail. In fact, the Flag definitives are printed and sold in far greater quantity than any other U.S. issues. This stamp was the first to be perforated on the BEP's new Eureka perforator, which punched the sheets with perfect bull's-eye perforations.
 
This was the first booklet the U.S. ever issued that carried commemorative-sized stamps. The larger size allowed designer Frank Waslick to add to his original artwork. The size of the flag and the capitol remained the same, but the wings of the capitol were extended, and a flagpole and some Washington scenery were added.
