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.

Flag Adopted:  1917

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

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

 

California State flag

Who knows whom William Todd is?

Hi Folks, Patrick Page here… The first flag of California was hastily created by a group of American settlers who revolted against Mexican control in California.  After capturing the town of Sonoma, they tore down the Mexican flag and replaced it with one they constructed from odds and ends of cloth and materials.  Legend tells that the white field and red stripe were made from women’s petticoats.  William Todd, cousin of Mary Todd Lincoln, drew a single red star, the words “California Republic” and a sketch of a grizzly bear, that the rebels met as they fought the Mexican army.  It was also a symbol of the settlers determination to gain independence.  That original California state flag was kept in San Francisco until it was  destroyed in an earthquake.  The California design has remained basically the same throughout the years. California State Flag Adopted:  1911

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.

9/11 15 years ago.

Flag of Heroes Made in the USA includes the names of all the Emergency Services personnel, including FDNY, PAPD, and NYPD & COURT Officers.

Patriot Day is an annual observance on September 11 to remember those who were injured or died during the terrorist attacks in the United States on September 11, 2001. Many Americans refer Patriot Day as 9/11 or September 11.

The flags are a historical marker to the events of 9/11 which is one of the most significant events of our lifetime. They give people a tangible connection to that day. Since flags are used as symbols in our country and a flag can be framed or flown it was the best way to create a lasting tribute that the public could embrace on an individual level.

The American Flag is often displayed around images of the events on September 11, 2001. This is to remind Americans that their country remained strong in the face of massive terrorist attacks.

The Flag of Honor and Flag of Heroes are in stock at Flag-Works over America.  You can place your order online or with a customer service representative at 1-800-580-0009.  Please remember: all flags purchased online ship for free.
