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
