Louisiana

The flag of Louisiana – the flag of one of 50 US states.

Design

The flag consists of an image of a white pelican in a blue background taking care of its progeny. Young pelicans bite breast of their parent, making three drops of blood. The white ribbon below the pelicans states the Louisiana motto, “Union, Justice, and Confidence” in the blue letters. The researches say, however, that the image of pelicans does not correspond to reality, as although pelicans are known for their careful nurturing, they do not sacrifice their own fresh for the progeny. The myth about self-sacrificing of pelicans is considered to be created by religious institutions to spread the legend for a prevalence of self-sacrificing in nature.

The pelican is an old symbol of Louisiana.

History

Louisiana had nine other flags before the current one. The state had the banner of France, Spain, and Great Britain before becoming a part of the USA in 1803. The present-day flag was adopted in 1919.
