United States of America National Flag

The American Flag is Red, White and Blue, or Old Glory Red, white and Old Glory Blue. The blue canton symbolizes the union and the present day 50 stars stand for the 50 states. The 13 stripes, 7 red and 6 white represent the original 13 colonies (New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania) which formed the independent nation from England known as the United States of America. The color blue symbolizes loyalty, devotion, friendship, justice and truth; the color red stands for courage, zeal and fervency; and the color white represents purity and rectitude of conduct.  The original government proportions of the national flag and the state flags are followed only by the government and the armed forces while the general public use the proportions of 2:3 3:5 and 5:8

Arizona State Flag

 

Hi Folks Patrick Page with Flag-Works.com here….Originally part of the United Mexican States, Arizona  became part of the New Mexico Territory after the Mexican War, then became its own territory and finally a separate state.  The idea for a state flag arose because the Arizona rifle team realized it was the only team at national matches without a flag.  Colonel Charles W. Harris, adjutant general and chief administrative officer of Arizona, designed the flag.   He used four colors on the flag-Arizona’s colors, blue and gold; and Spain’s red and yellow, to symbolize the first white men who came to Arizona.  The 13 red and yellow rays of sun stand for the first 13 states, and the copper-colored star represents Arizona’s place as the largest produce of copper in the country.  The blue matches that of the American flag.

Arkansas State Flag Video

 

Hi Folks Patrick Page with Flag-Works over America here…In 1912, the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) wanted to commemorate a new U.S. battleship, called the Arkansas, by presenting it with three flags – the U.S. flag, a naval battle flag, and the Arkansas state flag.  But Arkansas didn’t have a flag yet.  Through a design competition, Miss Willie Hocker became the Arkansas flag’s creator.  Her original flag design showed only three stars, recalling that Arkansas was one of the three states formed from the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 from France.  The state name, Arkansas, was added later, as was the upper blue star, which represents the Confederacy.  The diamond shape acknowledges that Arkansas is home to the only known diamond mine in the United States.  The 25 stars surrounding it symbolize that Arkansas was the 25th state.  Arkansas State Flag Adopted:  1913

Idaho State Flag Video

Hi Folks Patrick Page with Flag-Works here….  The Idaho state seal, designed by Miss Emma Edwards, is an integral part of Idaho’s flag.  She honored the women’s suffrage movement on Idaho’s seal with its female figure of Liberty and Justice, which supports one side of the coat of arms.  On the other is a miner.  The shield between them represents the protection they unite in giving the state.  The fir tree and sheaf of grain depict Idaho’s agricultural resources.  An elk’s head, rising above the shield, stresses the protection of the elk and moose in Idaho.  Below the shield, fruits and vegetables fill cornucopias to symbolize abundance.  Idaho State Flag Adopted:  1907

Flags: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

 

A little opinion piece about what makes a flag design a good one or a bad one.

Illinois State Flag

Hi folks Patrick Page here with Flag-WorksIllinois has had two official state flags.  In 1913, a contest was held for the best state flag design offered by one of the Illinois chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution.  Lucy Derwent’s winning design took elements from the state seal designed by Sharon Tyndale, Illinois’s secretary of state in 1868.  When an American officer in Vietnam complained that the Illinois flag lacked distinction, the wheels were in motion for some changes.  The Illinois state flag was replaced in 1970 by a flag that was revised by Mrs. Sanford Hutchinson.  It contains an exact copy of Tyndale’s state seal, with the word “Illinois” in blue letters below.  Illinois State Flag Adopted:  1970

 

Florida State Flag

Hi Folks Patrick Page here with Flag-Works….

Florida’s original state flag, in 1845, was only used once because it created a political commotion.  The next Florida state flag, in 1861, was designed because Florida  was preparing to secede from the Union and could no longer use the Union flag.  The Florida state flag had three large stars on it, representing Florida, Mississippi and South Carolina, the three states that had seceded.  Another Florida state flag was adopted soon after secession.  But after the Civil War, a new Florida state flag was designed.  It depicts the Florida state seal in the center of a white field.  On the seal are symbols of Florida – the sun, a palm tree, a steamboat, and a Native American woman scattering flowers.  The red cross of St. Andrew was added in 1900.  Since then, the original cocoa tree became a cabbage palmetto.  And the Native American’s dress was altered to show more accurately that she is of the Seminoles, a Native American tribe that has long lived in Florida.  Florida State Flag Adopted:  1900
