The Commonwealth of Kentucky became the 15th state to join the United States in 1792; however, the official Kentucky flag wouldn’t be finalized until 1963. The chosen flag design was drawn by art teacher Jesse Cox Burgess and adopted in 1918 by the Kentucky legislature.

In the middle of the flag is Kentucky’s state seal, which artist and Kentucky politician Nan Gorman created. The people shown on the seal are said to represent the famous frontiersman Daniel Boone, responsible for most of the exploration of Kentucky’s territory, and Henry Clay, Kentucky’s most famous politician. The seal also includes the state motto: "United we stand, divided we fall." Sprigs of goldenrod, the state flower, are shown beneath the state seal to symbolize the tie between Kentucky’s government and nature.
