History of the Flag
1905 Nevada State Flag
1929 Nevada State Flag
In 1864, Nevada joined the Union as the 36th state. The first flag of Nevada was created by Governor John Sparks and Colonel Harry Day in 1905. The flag had a dark blue field and strongly featured Nevada's natural resources of silver and gold. Ten years later, in 1915, the flag was changed to display the Nevada Coat of arms and 36 gold stars. Then, in 1926, Governor Maurice Sullivan decided that the flag should be changed once again. Sullivan believed that the flag was too intricate and expensive to make and buy, preventing it from being used more frequently all over the state. Governor Sullivan though a simpler design would allow for more widespread use throughout the state, especially in schools and classrooms. So, in June of 1926, it was announced that there would be a contest held to find a new design for the Nevada state flag and that the winner would be awarded $25.00. Louis Shellback's design won the contest and was submitted to Nevada Legislature, but there was a disagreement about the placement of the word "NEVADA". In 1929 the Nevada Legislature finally reached a compromise and the new flag was officially adopted by a bill signed by Governor Fred B. Balzar. In 1991, the the placement of the word "NEVADA" was changed from a clockwise circle around the star to a straight line under the star. This was the last change made to the flag, and the design has remained unchanged ever since.
