The Rhode Island flag is set on an all white background. A yellow anchor is located in the middle, and is surrounded by 13 stars, which are a reflection of the thirteen original colonies. It also speaks to the fact that Rhode Island was the last of the colonies to approve of the Constitution.
A banner with the word “Hope”, the motto of the state, rests below the anchor. The Rhode Island flag was adopted in 1897. The banner’s ratio is 29:33.
