Louisiana State Flags
Since 1861, this Louisiana state flag has been flown (although the pelican design was changed slightly in 2006). The pelican depicted here is wounding herself to feed her young (also called a “pelican in her piety”) and is the same pelican that is used on the state seal. The ribbon below the bird recalls the state motto, “Union, Justice and Confidence.” In 2006, a bill was passed in congress requiring three drops of blood to always be drawn on the pelican’s breast on the flag as well as the state seal.
We're proud to offer the Louisiana state flag in two different outdoor fabrics, including nylon for an Louisiana flag that flies in a light wind and an extra-tough polyester Louisiana flag designed to withstand the elements. Even our miniature 4 inch by 6 inch Louisiana 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 Louisiana flags feature luxurious gold fringe on 3 sides and a pole sleeve end for a clean look.
