The Alaska 6'x10' Beacon® flag, a Carrot-Top Exclusive, is the most versatile state flag. These durable nylon state flags have the advantage of being strong yet lightweight enabling them to dry quickly and fly even in a slight breeze. The Beacon® is a great choice for areas with little to moderate winds. Finished with a canvas header and solid brass grommets. Made in the USA.
Did you know? Alaska’s flag has eight gold stars on a background of dark blue; the stars form the shape of the Big Dipper and the North Star. Before 1927, the Alaskan territory was represented by the US flag. This flag was designed by Benny Benson, a native from Seward, who chose the blue background to represent the Alaska sky and the forget-me-not flower. The North Star symbolized the future of state of Alaska and the dipper symbolized the bear, or strength. The flag was adopted as the official state flag when Alaska became a state in 1959.
