State of Tennessee Flag
State of Tennessee Flag
- Year First Flown: 1905
- Designed By: LeRoy Reeves
- Design: A "crimson" red flag with a circle in the middle that is outlined in white and filled with blue. Inside the circle are three white five-point stars. On the right side of the flag is a small blue vertical stripe lined up against an even smaller white vertical stripe.
- Meaning: The three stars symbolize the three geographical areas of Tennessee: the lowlands in the west, the highlands in the middle, and the mountains in the east. They also signify the fact that Tennessee was the third state to join the Union after the 13 original states.
Tennessee first became a state and joined the Union on June 1st, 1796. However, over a century would pass before the state would adopt an official flag. Finally, in 1905, the state of Tennessee adopted an official flag for their state. The flag was designed by Leroy Reeves, who was a captain in the Third Regiment of the Tennessee Infantry. Reeves described his design as, "The three stars are of pure white, representing the three grand divisions of the state. They are bound together by the endless circle of the blue field, the symbol being three bound together in one - an indissoluble trinity. The large field is crimson. The final blue bar relieves the sameness of the crimson field and prevents the flag from showing too much crimson when hanging limp. The white edgings contrast more strongly the other colors." The "three grand divisions" that Reeves mentions are the three differing geographical areas of Tennessee: the mountains in the East of Tennessee, the highlands in the middle of Tennessee, and the lowlands in the West of Tennessee. Tennessee State legislature approved of the design, and the flag was officially adopted on April 17th, 1905. The flag design has not been changed since 1905, and Reeves's design still flies all over the land of Tennessee today.
