Modern Designs of US State Flags
Most state flags in the United States were adopted near the end of the 19th century and in the first few decades of the 20th century. Most of the state flags for sale on the modern market date back to that period, which saw both an increase in interest about regional culture in the United States and a pressing need for most state governments to produce flags for display at the Pan-American Exposition. Some of the flags were designed by the state government to meet that need for a flag, and many of those designs feature the state's seal on a dark blue field. Many Southern states preferred to adopt flags that represented the state or its soldiers during the Civil War. Some of those flags have been replaced in recent years, but just as many of them remain in use. Most of the other flags that came into use during this period were designed though contests, usually sponsored by the Daughters of the American Revolution.
