Alabama

The flag of Alabama – the symbol of one of 50 US states.

Design

The flag consists of the two red diagonals crossing in the middle of a white field. The two diagonals form a crimson cross of St. Andrew known as a saltire. The design of the flag refers to the flag of the Confederate States of America. According to the law, the diagonal bars of the cross should be no less than 6 inches broad. There is no specification whether the flag should be square or rectangular.
There is also a salute to Alabama’s flag:
Flag of Alabama I salute thee.
To thee I pledge my allegiance,
my service, and my life.

History

The current flag of Alabama is a second official flag of the state flowing in its history. It was authorized in 1895 by Act 383 of the Alabama state legislature. In 1905 there was a proposal to add stars to the flag to make it look even more similar to the Confederate flag. However, the proposal was denied.
