ALABAMA STATE FLAG HISTORY & DESIGN
Alabama joined the United States in 1819 as the 22nd state admitted to the Union. It took until 1895 for Alabama to have a Union state flag when Representative John Sanford Jr. created legislation stipulating the design of the Alabama flag.
Its design is a simple red saltire X-shaped cross over a white background, based upon the Spanish cross of Burgundy. This saltire design is also known as St. Andrew’s cross.
