The Alaska Flag design was adopted by the Alaska Territory Legislature on May 2nd, 1927, and then officially adopted by the state legislature in 1959 after Alaska gained statehood. The artwork consists of a dark blue field with eight golden stars in the formation of the Big Dipper and Polaris (the north star). The Blue background is meant to represent the sky and the forget-me-not which was later to become Alaska’s official state flower. The north star was for the future state of Alaska and the northernmost in the union while the dipper represents the bear which is a symbol of strength.
