Official 3×5 Superknit Polyester Kentucky State Flag 1918 – Present
The Commonwealth of Kentucky Flag design was adopted by the Kentucky General Assembly on March 26th, 1918. The original design created by Jesse Cox Burgess consisted of the state seal centered on a field of azure with sprigs of goldenrod (which is the state flower) in a half-circle pattern below the seal. “Kentucky” and “1792”, which was the year of statehood were printed horizontally above and below the seal in gold lettering. The verbiage was revised in 1963 by removing the “1792” date, changing “Kentucky” to “Commonwealth of Kentucky” and reconfiguring the print to an arched pattern conforming to the top half of the seal thus balancing the arch of goldenrod sprigs on the bottom half of the. The remainder of the design was unchanged. It is believed by some that the man dressed in buckskin is Daniel Boone who was largely responsible for the exploration of Kentucky and the other man is Henry Clay, Kentucky’s most famous Statesman. The official explanation, however, is that the figures represent all statesmen and frontiersmen.
