Alaska State Flags
The Alaska state flag symbolizes the diversity, location, natural beauty and strength of “The Land of the Midnight Sun.” Designed in 1927 by John Bell Benson, a 13-year old orphan from Seward, the blue field represents the sky, sea, mountain lakes and wildflowers of Alaska. Blue also captures the color of the forget-me-not, an Alaskan flower. Seven of eight emblazoned gold stars form the Big Dipper, a constellation often referred to as the Great Bear--an animal indigenous to Alaska and a symbol of the state’s strength. The eighth star, being the North Star, represents the Northern most state.
Our Alaska state flags are available in several varieties including two outdoor fabrics. Our Beacon Nylon Outdoor flag, a Carrot-Top exclusive, is the most versatile state flag. These well-made, durable flags have the advantage of being strong yet lightweight. This enables them to dry quickly and fly in the slightest breeze. Our Alaskan Patriarch flag, also a Carrot-Top exclusive, is the best quality polyester flag available. These Alaska state flags are crafted from tough, skillfully woven polyester that has the texture and feel of cotton. Carrot-Top Flags are able to stand up to high winds and are the best choice for coastal areas and extreme weather. Both the Beacon nylon and Patriarch polyester flags feature a canvas header along the left side with two solid brass grommets for easy attachment to your flag pole.
The Alaskan indoor flag is finished with a lined pole sleeve along the left side and traditional fringe around the remaining sides. This look creates a distinguished display. Our miniature 4”x6” and mini 8”x12’ Alaska flags are made of polyester and rayon. Miniature flags are perfect for gifts, keepsakes, classrooms, special events and more. American Flag and Alaska State Flag lapel pin are also available.
