U.S state flag of Florida
Facts, history and meaning about the flag of Florida

The state flag of Florida is a striking and colorful design that features a red cross on a white background, with the state seal in the center. The seal shows a sun setting over a body of water, with a palm tree and a Native American Seminole woman scattering flowers at its base. The sun represents Florida's sunny climate and its status as the "Sunshine State," while the water, palm tree, and flowers symbolize the state's natural beauty and diverse ecosystems.

The red cross is a nod to the state's Spanish heritage, as it resembles the cross of the Order of Santiago, which was a Spanish military and religious order that played a significant role in the colonization of Florida. The red color also represents the blood spilled in defense of the state and the nation, and the white background symbolizes the purity of the state's intentions and its commitment to peace and prosperity.

The state flag of Florida was first adopted in 1900, although the design has undergone some minor changes over the years. The current design was adopted in 1985 and is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful and distinctive state flags in the United States.
