Arkansas State Flags

In 1913, The Daughters of the American Revolution found there was no state flag to present at the commissioning of the Battleship U.S.S Arkansas. They decided to have a flag designing contest. The winner was Miss Willie Cavanaugh Hocker of Wabbaseka, Arkansas. The diamond shapes in the middle of the Arkansas state flag symbolize the fact Arkansas is the only state with documented diamond mines. The 25 white stars indicate Arkansas’s standing as the twenty-fifth state. Located at the bottom of the flag you’ll find three blue stars that represent the three countries that once owned Arkansas. They were Spain, France and the United States.  In 1923, a fourth blue star was added to recognize Arkansas’ membership in the Confederacy. In 1924, the name Arkansas was added to the flag. The design was re-arranged to give balance to the design.  The Arkansas state flag was finalized and adopted by the state of Arkansas in 1926.
