Kentucky - Flag Facts
Statehood was granted to Kentucky on June 1, 1792. Great Britain’s flag, the Union Jack, was flown over the land of Kentucky before the Revolutionary War. In 1776, Kentucky joined the Commonwealth of Virginia as a county and flew the flag of Virginia after the Declaration of Independence was signed. At that time, Kentucky adopted the 15-star flag of the United States.
The original Kentucky flag was adopted in 1918. The law was not specific enough to produce a consistent design, so it was finalized in 1962 by the Kentucky legislature.
- It was designed after the original Kentucky militia colors and includes the official state seal.
- The background is Navy blue.
- The state seal shows a frontiersman in buckskins (representing the country population) and a statesman in a formal frock coat (representing the city population) clasping hands in agreement. It is believed that these two men are also representative of Daniel Boone (Kentucky’s famous frontiersman) and Henry Clay (a famous Kentucky statesman).
- The state motto “United We Stand, Divided We Fall.” Is included in the seal.
- The seal is encircled by the words “Commonwealth of Kentucky” at the top and a wreath of goldenrod, the state flower, at the bottom.
The general Assembly of Kentucky adopted the Pledge of Allegiance to the State Flag in 2000.
"I pledge allegiance to the Kentucky flag, and to the Sovereign State for which it stands, one Commonwealth, blessed with diversity, natural wealth, beauty, and grace from on High."
