which is exactly incorrect.
The answer provides facts relevant to the "stripes" on the U.S. flag being copied from the British East India Company flag, refuting the story that the flag is solely attributable to Betsy Ross.
The answer directly answers the question by providing historical political facts as to why the "stripes" of the flag attributed to "Betsy Ross" have their origin in the design of the British East India Company flag, and refutes the continuing romanticized story that "Betsy Ross" is the designer of the flag.
This is particularly importantly politically as the mythology of Betsy Ross designing the U.S. flag is still perpetuated today. While the Wikipedia page does state that attribution of the flag to Betsy Ross is "very likely incorrectly - attributed to Betsy Ross" the Wikipedia page has not mention whatsoever of the "stripes" being copied from the British East India Company flag, or that the "stripes" on the Grand Union Flag are copied from the British East India Company flag
The Betsy Ross flag is an early design of the flag of the United States, popularly – but very likely incorrectly – attributed to Betsy Ross, using the common motifs of alternating red-and-white striped field with five-pointed stars in a blue canton.

The answer is of historical and political importance as to the origin of the U.S. flag. The answer does directly answer the question, even if people were previously ignorant of the fact that the U.S. flag's "stripes" are derived or copied from the British East India Company flag. Once the political history of the U.S. flag is known, people cannot attribute the flag solely to "Betsy Ross", as that is simply an inaccurate description of the historical political origin of U.S. flag. That is, after having knowledge of the origin of the U.S. flag one can no longer look at the flag in pure ignorance; without any understanding of the flag's origin in the British East India Company's flag.
Users can "down" vote the answer all they want, if their sentiment or beliefs regarding their previous romanticized version of the designer of the U.S. flag is challenged. To delete the answer is a simply an incorrect decision made by a moderator. The answer should be immediately un-deleted.
