About the Florida Flag

 

Florida adopted a new seal and flag when it rejoined the United States in 1868 following the Civil War.  The state's former flag was thought to resemble too closely the flag of the Confederacy.    The new flag consisted of a field of white surrounding the state seal, which depicted an Indian woman strewing flowers on the ground.  The seal also showed a cocoa palm, a bag of coffee, and a steamboat.  Mountains rose dramatically in the background.

 

During his governorship in the late 1890s, Florida Governor Francis P. Fleming complained that his state's flag looked like a white flag of surrender when hanging limp on a flagpole.  At his suggestion, the red cross of St. Andrews was added to the flag under an 1899  joint resolution of the Florida legislature, which was approved by the voters the following year.

 

In the 1980s, people realized that the Florida state seal, and therefore the flag bearing it, contained some inaccuracies.   There was the question of the mountains, on the seal of a state with a maximum elevation of 345 feet.  Also, the seal depicted the wrong kind of palm; the state tree was the sabal palm, not the cocoa palm.  And then there was the matter of the Indian woman, presumably intended to represent the Seminole people native to Florida, clothed in the garb of a  Plains Indian. 

 

A new seal correcting all these problems was adopted on May 21, 1985.
