State of Florida Flag
State of Florida Flag
- Year First Flown: 1900
- Designed By: Official Commission
- Design: A white flag with two stripes of red reaching from corner to corner and crossing diagonally in the center. On top of the point where the two stripes cross is the Florida State Seal, which consists of a Native American Seminole woman scattering flowers on the water near a palmetto palm tree (Florida's state tree) and a ship sailing in the background.
- Meaning: The flag's design is meant to resemble the Confederate battle flag, which had a similar cross shape on it. The state seal symbolizes the beauty and sunshine of the state of Florida.
The Lone Star and Stripes
The state of Florida joined the United States of America and became the 27th state on March 3rd, 1845. Up until the Civil War, Florida didn't have an official flag to fly over its land. After Florida seceded from the Union in 1861 the state used a flag called "The Lone Star and Stripes" that was very similar to the American Flag but only had one star. As a member of the Confederate States of America, Florida also flew the Confederate flag and the Bonnie Blue Flag (an unofficial flag of the Confederacy). In 1865, Florida finally fell to the Union and was the second to last Confederate state to do so. After Florida agreed to the requirements of Reconstruction the state's representatives were readmitted to Congress and Florida was completely restored to the United States of America on July 25th, 1868. Between 1868 and 1900, the flag of Florida was a simple white flag with the state seal placed in the center of it. In the late 1890's, Florida Governor Francis P. Fleming suggested that Florida add a burgundy diagonal cross to the flag in order to differentiate it from white flags of truce when it was hanging still on a flagpole. In 1900, Floridians approved of Governor Fleming's suggestion and the burgundy cross was added to create the flag that is still Florida's official flag today.
