Alaska State Flags
We're proud to offer the Alaska state flag in two different outdoor fabrics, including nylon for an Alaska flag that flies in a light wind and an extra-tough polyester Alaska flag designed to withstand the elements. Even our miniature 4 inch by 6 inch Alaska flags mounted to a plastic dowel are perfect for classroom, special events, parades and more! Looking for something for a parade or indoor application? Our indoor fringed Alaska flags feature luxurious gold fringe on 3 sides and a pole sleeve end for a clean look.
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.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.
