The Last Frontier State
In January of 1927, 30 years before Alaska joined the Union, the Alaska Department of the American Legion
sponsored a contest for children to design the state flag. The winning design that still flies today was submitted by a 13
year old boy named John Bell Benson.
Now you can get the same flag that Benny Benson created nearly a century ago. The blue background represents the sky,
sea, mountain lakes, and the Forget-Me-Not state flower. Seven gold stars shape the Big Dipper to symbolize strength, and the
single gold star in the upper right corner symbolizes the North Star and Alaska as the northern most state in the Union. The
state's mineral wealth is shown brightly with the gold color of the stars, and the blue background matches the blue on the
United States flag.
