History of the Nevada Flag
The Nevada State Flag features a cobalt blue background. The top left corner of the flag features a silver five-point star that is encircled by two sagebrush branches in bloom with yellow flowers. The green sagebrush is the state flower of Nevada. A yellow banner is draped across the top with the words, "Battle Born," the state motto, emblazoned in black. Underneath the star, "Nevada" is written in bold yellow text. The silver star represents the states nickname, "the silver state," while "Battle Born" is one of the state's mottoes and represents Nevada becoming a state during the American civil war. The gold and silver colors used on the flag represent the state's natural resources of gold and silver. Nevada has utilized four different state flags since 1905.
In 1926, the Lieutenant Governor of Nevada, Maurice Sullivan determined that the state flag design at that time was cost-prohibitive to produce due to its intricate design. In accordance with this, a design contest was held for a new design in 1926. The winner of the contest was Louis Schellbach, III, who claimed the $25 prize and the honor of having been the designer of the Nevada State Flag. Schellbach's design was officially adopted as the Nevada State Flag on March 26th, 1929. The design was amended on June 8th, 1991, to add the state's name.
Nevada is located in the Southwestern region of the United States of America and borders California, Utah, Arizona, Oregon and Idaho. The capital city is Carson City, while the largest city in the state is Las Vegas. Carson City is the only state capital in the United States that borders another state. Nevada is the gambling and entertainment capital of the world and is also the largest gold producer in the United States. Nevada is named after the mountain range, Sierra Nevada. "Sierra" (translates as saw-the metal blade with teeth) and Nevada (translates as snow-covered). Nevada's approximately 300 mountain rages are the most of any state in the country. Nevada is nicknamed, "The Silver State" due to the vast amount of silver and gold that was found. The state is also known as "The Battle Born State" and "The sagebrush State."
The first residents of Nevada were Native American Tribes that included the Shoshone, Paiute, Washoe, and Mohave. The Spanish Explorer, Francisco Garces, was the first European to explore the area and he claimed the area as part of the Spanish Empire in the 1700s. In 1827, explorer Jedediah Smith mapped out the area for the travelers. Until the Mexican-American war, Nevada was considered to be part of Spain and Mexico. At the end of the war in 1848, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo made Nevada part of the United States of America . In 1861, Nevada became its own territory and it was officially named the 36th State of the United States of America on October 31st, 1864.
Nevada attracts many tourists each year, especially to visit the Las Vegas Strip which is known for being home to some of the largest and most luxurious casinos, resort, and hotels in the world. Lake Tahoe is also another popular destination, known for its beautiful beaches in the wummer and ski resorts in the winter.
