The Arkansas State Flag consists of a white diamond with a wide blue border on a field of red symbolizing the fact that (at the time the flag was adopted) Arkansas was the only state to have discovered and successfully mined diamonds. The twenty-five white stars lining the diamond’s border represent Arkansas being the 25th state admitted into the United States. The single star above “Arkansas” represents the state’s former membership in the Confederacy, while the three stars below have three separate meanings: France, Spain, and The United States are the three countries that ruled the land before gaining statehood. The Louisiana Purchase, which brought the land that is now Arkansas into the US as a territory was signed in 1803. After Louisiana and Missouri, Arkansas was the third state formed out of the land acquired from the Louisiana Purchase.
