Flag Description

The Sons of the Revolution is a patriotic organisation in the United States that promote the study of the US Revolutionary War as well as maintain a few historical sites associated with it.

The society was created in the 1876 century by members of the Society of the Cincinnati who wished to extend the membership beyond the eldest descendants of individual officers of the continental army.

In 1889, the society suffered a schism of its own with a number of members leaving over matters of membership requirements and branches hierarchy and establishing The Sons of the American Revolution.

The two flags here share the same basic design being gold-blue-gold vertically divided with the organisation's logo centered. The first is based on the image of a table flag that was sold on one of the SOR's website which has the vertical bands of equal width while the second, seen only in drawing form, is instead a Canadian pale with the name of the organisation above the logo and the state's name below based on which I would assume that similar flags are used during parade by the various chapters.
