Runners followed the pace car, which this year, is a work of art. It’s actually an upscale SUV wrapped up in a painting done by local D.C. artist Maggie O’Neil. It's an abstract cityscape that shows many of the landmarks on the National Mall including the U.S. Capitol and the Washington Monument.

The Betsy Ross Flag accompanied the American Flag as part of the parachute jump during the opening ceremonies on Sunday.

One of the earliest designs of the nation’s flag, the Betsy Ross version features 13 five-point stars along with the traditional 13 red and white stripes. Stories say that Betsy was commissioned to sew the flag after a visit from General George Washington in 1776 as a symbol for the Continental Congress.
