The flag of the Commonwealth of Kentucky was adopted on March 26, 1918.
The Kentucky flag consists of the Commonwealth's seal on a navy blue field, surrounded by the words "Commonwealth of Kentucky" above and sprigs of goldenrod, the state flower, below. The seal depicts a pioneer and a statesman embracing. It is believed that the buckskin-clad man on the left is Daniel Boone, who was largely responsible for the exploration of Kentucky, and the man in the suit on the right is Henry Clay, Kentucky's most famous statesman. The state motto: "United We Stand, Divided We Fall" circles them.
