Louisiana Flag History and Meaning 

Since 1812, when Louisiana first joined the union, the state has gone through a total of 9 different flags. However, the pelican seen on the flag today has been a symbol of Louisiana since the year of its statehood. In 1912, the state’s centennial, the state legislature recognized the pelican along with its younger counterparts as the official flag. The flag later received a more artistic and multicolored rendering in 2010. 

The pelican tearing at itself to feed its young is used as a representation of self-sacrifice, as well as a dedication to Louisiana descendants. The words below, “Union, Justice & Confidence,” are the Louisiana state motto.
