Description of the flag

The flag can be seen in It is medium blue with seven wavy yellow stars.

In, the flag is described in detail, but I think the stars look different.

The RI Liberator version is close, but the stars have to be thicker and have some kind of circle in the middle.

As the creator of the image and blog post on RI Liberator, I'm fully transparent there that this an adjustment of the Portsmouth flag since I personally didn't find the estoiles in John McDaid's image aesthetically pleasing (in addition, arrangement is largely conjecture). This close-up of the Portsmouth flag as displayed in the RI State House was taken in October of 2021, and displays a different style of estoile. So there is at least disagreement between different government sources.
