The Volunteer State
Paying homage to the stars and stripes of the American Flag since 1905, the current Tennessee state flag uses a
basic design to express multiple things. The three stars centered within a blue circle outlined in white represent multiple
ideas. First, they represent Tennessee as the third state to enter the union after the original 13. Second, they stand for the
three distinct geographic areas Tennessee is known for—the valleys in the west, the Cumberland Plateau in the middle and the
Great Smoky Mountains in the east. The stars placement within the circle is also said to stand for indivisible unity, both as a
state and a nation.
The usage of red, white, and blue also goes further than being inspired by the American Flag. The blue stripe on
the right symbolizes the love that the people of Tennessee have for the state, the white stands for purity, and the red
expresses that in times of war and peace, Tennesseans are, and always will be, proud to be true-blooded Americans.
