Alaska Flag with Staff and Spear
Flags International is proud to offer this Alaska Flag with Staff and Spear. In 1927 the competition to design a flag for Alaska was won by 13-year-old Benny Benson who got his inspiration from Alaska’s northerly position. The flag shows the large North Star with the Great Bear below it. When Alaska was given statehood in 1959 the flag remained the same. The stars are the yellow color of natural gold and the field is the same blue as appears on the Stars and Stripes. The width of the flag to the length is in the proportion of 125: 177. The diameter of the North Star is one-tenth of the width and the stars of the Great Bear are three-fifths the diameter of the North Star. 4in x 6in flags come on a 3/16in x 10″ black plastic staff with gold spear tip finial. 8in x 12in flags are carefully hemstitched on all four sides for longer lasting beauty. 8in x 12in flags come on a 1/4in x 18in black wood staff with gold blunt spear finial.
