The Iowa State Flag

The Iowa State Flag was a design by Mrs. Gebhardt that she submit into a contest and selected by the Iowa State Governor.
Mrs. Gebhardt wrote that "Iowa's banner should embrace the history of its domain from the time of its occupation by the Indians to discovery by the French and purchase from Napoleon by Jefferson, to its admission into the Union, down to the present time. All this should be represented in a design so simple that school children and adults can recognize its symbolism and know that it meant Iowa." The colors of the Iowa state flag offered other significance as well. White was chosen to symbolize the unwritten page of history at the Iowa state's beginning, when the first Native Americans lived on Iowa's prairies and represents purity. Blue represents loyalty, justice, and truth and red stands for courage.
An eagle is displayed on the white center stripe of the flag. The eagle on the Iowa state flag carries in its beak blue streamers with the state motto, "Our liberties we prize, and our rights we will maintain", in white letters. The State name "IOWA" is printed in red letters below the eagle.
