The Alabama Flag

Alabama Flag

The Alabama flag is set on a white background and a crimson saltire crosses it. It was adopted on February 16, 1895. Some believe it was influenced by the Confederate Battle flag, because like the battle flag, it is often depicted as a square. However, the state government issued a statement claiming the Alabama flag is actually a rectangle.

The banner also is similar to the Union Jack, flag of St. Patrick, and the Cross of Burgundy (used by the Spanish). Other theories of the origins of the Alabama flag exist. The state had a different banner in 1861.
