Welcome to: Alaska

State  Flag:

Alaska adopted the flag for
official state use in 1959.
The blue field represents the sky,
the sea, and mountain lakes,
as well as Alaska's wildflowers.

Emblazoned on the flag are
eight gold stars: seven in the
constellation Ursa Major,
or the Big Dipper.
The eighth being the North Star,
representing the northern most state.

The white on the left above is Russia
The faint white line is the Artic Circle


State Song:
"Alaska's Flag"

Eight stars of gold on a field of blue,
Alaska's flag, may it mean to you,

The blue of the sea, the evening sky,
The mountain lakes and the flowers nearby,

The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,
The precious gold of the hills and streams,

The brilliant stars in the northern sky,
The "Bear," the "Dipper," and shining high,

The great North Star with its steady light,
O'er land and sea a beacon bright,

Alaska's flag to Alaskans dear,
The simple flag of a last frontier.
