Alaska is called “The Last Frontier”,
because of its opportunities and many lightly settled regions, and
the “Land of the Midnight Sun”, because the sun shines
nearly around the clock during Alaskan summers.
Alaska adopted the flag for official state use in 1959. The blue field represents the sky, the sea, and mountain lakes, as well as Alaska's wildflowers. Emblazoned on the flag are eight gold stars: seven in the constellation Ursa Major, or the Big Dipper. The eighth being the North Star, representing the northern most state.
