The flag of the state of Louisiana has undergone many changes over the past hundred and fifty years before settling on the current design. Originally a yellow star sitting atop a red canton with white, blue, and red stripes, the design underwent its first change at the end of the civil war. The official version was adopted on July 1, 1912, and nicknamed the “Pelican Flag,” taking notes from the state seal, which depicted a brown pelican, Louisiana’s state bird. The state legislature voted to use a similar image on the flag, replacing it with a white pelican vulning itself over its chicks. Written below was the phrase union, justice, and confidence inside a white banner. Unfortunately, apart from specifying the bird remain white, no other details regarding the positioning of the pelican, the number of chicks, or any other aspect of the flag were given, which created confusion on how the official ensign should look.
Over the course of the 19th century, it became common for the state flag to highlight the piety of the pelican by displaying three drops of blood on her chest, making it one of the more gory flags to date. Finally, on November 22, 2010, after years of confusion over the design of the flag, official standardized imagery was introduced, incorporating the original brown pelicans yellow crown; the white version is seen vulning itself to three pelican chicks with the phrase, “Union Justice Confidence” which removed the word “and” found in the original version, written along a banner along the bottom of its nest.
As a long-standing symbol in Louisiana, it’s no surprise that the pelican was chosen for the design of the Louisiana state flag. Proudly displayed on the coat of arms, the “pelican in her piety” has deep European and Christian symbology. The flag contains a blue field which serves as the backdrop highlighting the bright white used to showcase their purity. Three drops of blood adorn the mother pelican’s breast, symbolizing both self-sacrifice and the Eucharists, where Christ shed his blood to atone for the sins of humankind. Louisiana’s state motto is clearly displayed within a banner below, indicating the ideals the state holds dear.
While the Louisiana state flag dates back to the beginning of the 1900s, the current flag has only flown for around 12 years. Let’s take a look at some more interesting facts about this unique flag.
