Arkansas - Flag Facts
The Arkansas state flag was adopted as the official state flag in February 1913, by both houses of the general assembly of the State of Arkansas. The flag remained unchanged until 1923, when the Legislature added a fourth star, and in 1924 a Confederate star was positioned above the state’s name, to represent Arkansas’ place in the Confederacy, and the original three below it.
Early in 1912, The Pine Bluff Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), decided to present a “stand of colors” to the U.S.S. Arkansas, a new battleship. When, according to Secretary of State Earle W. Hodges, it was found that Arkansas had no state flag, a committee was appointed to launch a movement to obtain one. Miss Willie Kavanaugh Hocker of Wabbeseka was the one who designed the chosen state flag.
The Arkansas state flag consists of a red field (background) bearing a blue-and-white design, completing a color scheme that was chosen in tribute to the United States. In the center is a white diamond, with four blue stars and the name of the state also in blue; surrounding the diamond is a blue band with 25 white stars, symbolizing Arkansas as the twenty-fifth state. The diamond appears twice on the flag because Arkansas is the only place in the United States where diamonds have ever been found. The three blue stars represent Spain, France, and the United States, the three nations that have ruled the land that is now Arkansas.
