Flag of Kentucky (GIF)



Kentucky, officially the Commonwealth of Kentucky, is a state located in the east-southcentral region of the United States. Its capital is Frankfort, and its largest city is Louisville; its population is about 4,454,000, and its area is 40,408 mi².

The Kentucky flag consists of the Commonwealth's seal on a dark blue field, surrounded by the words "Commonwealth of Kentucky" above and sprigs of goldenrod, the state flower, below. The seal shows the pioneer and statesman embracing each other. The official explanation is that the men represent all frontiersmen and statesmen, rather than any specific persons. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 10:19, and the flag was adopted on March 26, 1918.
