Alaska State Flags

Alaska State Flags - Outdoor and Indoor

The Alaska state flag has eight gold stars, representing the Big Dipper and Polaris, on a dark blue field. 30 years before Alaska became a state, the American Legion sponsored a contest for Alaskan children grades 7- 12 to design the territory flag. In 1927 Benny Benson, a 13-year-old Alaska native, had his designed chosen from roughly 700 other submissions. Benny created his design from a familiar constellation he looked for nightly before going to sleep. Benny submitted his description with:

“The blue field is for the Alaska sky and the forget-me-not, an Alaskan flower. The North Star is for the future state of Alaska, the most northerly in the union. The Dipper is for the Great Bear—symbolizing strength.”
