In 1926, Alaska held a competition for schoolchildren to create a new flag to represent the territory, as it had only previously flown the US flag. The winning design for the Alaskan state flag was chosen from over 700 submissions and was drawn by 13-year-old Benny Benson. 

Benson’s design for Alaska’s flag featured the constellation of the Big Dipper and the North Star on a dark blue background. In his description, Benson explained that the blue background symbolized the sky of Alaska and the regional forget-me-not flower.

Furthermore, the North Star represented the territory’s hope to become the northernmost state of the USA. The constellation Big Dipper is part of ‘Ursa Major,’ or the Great Bear, which Benson said stood for strength.

The Alaskan legislature approved Benny Benson’s winning design the year after the contest. The design would later become Alaska’s state flag when the territory achieved statehood in 1959.
