The Florida State Flag
Florida state flag
Reminiscent of Alabama’s State Flag and the red “X” of the Confederate States of America, the Florida State Flag displays two diagonal red bars on a white field. The official state specifications indicate:
The State Flag shall comform with standard commercial sizes and be of the following portions and descriptions: “The seal of the state, in diameter one-half the hoist, shall occupy the center of a white ground. Red bars, in width one-fifth the hoist, shall extend from each corner towards the center, to the outer rim of the seal.”
The Great Seal of the State of Florida, at the intersection of the red diagonal bars, features a Native American Seminole woman scattering flowers, a steamboat, a cabbage palmetto tree and a brilliant sun. Florida is thusly represented as the land of sunshine, flowers, palm trees, rivers and lakes… “la Florida”
