Alaska State Flag

         Hi Folks Patrick Page here with Flag-Works over America How are you doing today.  I’m here today to talk about the Alaska state flag   More than 30 years before Alaska  became a state, they held a design contest for a flag.  A seventh grade Aleut student, John Bell Benson  known as Benny won that contest. the design had a blue background to represent the sky and the Forget-me-not flower.

On that background were placed eight gold stars to represent the Big Dipper and the North Star.

The Big Dipper forms part of the constellation Ursa Major or Great Bear; symbolizing strength.  The North Star is the perfect representation for the future state of Alaska, it being the most northerly state in the Union.

This simple design was adopted by the Alaska Territorial Legislature in  May, 1927  So Benny for winning the contest received a gold watch with the flag engraved on it and  had a Thousand dollars applied to his schooling to become an diesel mechanic.    Benny was also scheduled to present the flag to President Calvin Coolidge, but never made it.  So in 1959, When Alaska become apart of the United States,  Benny’s design became the official Alaska State flag  Please visit flag-works.com for your Alaska State flag and all your other flag needs

Alabama State Flag

 

Hi Folks, Patrick Page here, I’m here to talk about the Alabama state flag, just like the one behind me here.  It’s a beautiful flag, its the St. Andrews Cross on a white field, crimson red cross.  Alabama entered the union in 1819, and it wasn’t until it seceded in 1891 that it adopted a flag of its own.  Imagine all that time not having a flag. Wow!  The first flag was designed by some Montgomery women. Hopefully we have a picture behind me so you can see that.  Because they had left the union the flag was referred to as The Republic of Alabama Flag,  well that particular flag did not fly long.  On February 10, 1861 one month after it was adopted the flag was damaged in a severe storm and was moved to the governor’s office never to fly over Alabama again.   So what did they do?  They just seceded from the states, they decided to fly the confederate flags.  So that’s what they did from 1861 to 1865.  After the war they raised the United States flag over Alabama and that flew until 1891 when Alabama decided to design a unique state flag as in again the one behind me.  So there you have it folks, if you have any interest in the Alabama state flag we have it.  Were at flag-works.com  Hope to see you here again thanks bye.

Washington State Flag

washington flag

The flag of the State of Washington consists of the state seal (which bears an image of George Washington) on a field of dark green. It is the only U.S. state flag with a field of green as well as the only state flag with the image of an American president.

In honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was born on February 22, 1732. Colloquially, it is widely known as Presidents Day and is often an occasion to remember all the presidents, not just George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday is also in February. The term”Presidents Day” was coined in a deliberate attempt to change the holiday into one honoring multiple presidents.

New Mexico Flag

NM

New Mexico was not officially recorded until the arrival of the Conquistadors, who encountered Native American Pueblos when they explored the area in the 16th century. Since that time, the area has been under the control of Spain, Mexico, and the United States, which took over in 1848. The long territorial period lasted until 1912. New Mexico became the 47th state in the US on 01/06/1912. During World War II, New Mexico was the site of the top-secret Manhattan Project, in which top U.S. scientists raced to create the first atomic bomb, which was tested at the Trinity Bomb site, near Alamagordo, on July 16, 1945.

An archaeologist, Dr. Harry Mera, designed this flag, which was adopted with urging by the Daughters of the American Revolution.  The colors of red and yellow recall the Spanish rule in the 17th century.  The symbol is that of the ancient Zia people, part of the Pueblo tribe located on the north bank of the James River.  It represents the belief of the Zias that the Giver of All Good Gifts gave in groups of four – four directions, four seasons, four times of the day and four states of life.  All these are connected by a circle of life and love, which is without beginning or end.

Oklahoma State November 16, 1907

Oklahoma became the 46th state in the United States on November 16, 1907.

Originally, the state of Oklahoma was set aside for the exclusive use of the Indians and was called Indian Territory. However, in 1889, the land was opened to settlers in what became know as the “Oklahoma Land Rush.” In the first opening day on April 22, 1889, 50,000 people swarmed into the area. Those who tried to beat the noon starting gun were called Sooners. The state’s nickname is Hence.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Oklahoma state flag honors more than 60 groups of Native Americans and their ancestors. The blue field comes from a flag carried by Choctaw soldiers during the civil war. The center shield is the battle shield of an Osage warrior. It is made of buffalo hide and decorated with eagle feathers. Two symbols of peace lie across the shield. One is the calumet, or peace pipe. The other is an olive branch. Crosses on the shield are Native American signs for stars, representing high ideals.
