Represent the Volunteer State outside your home or business with our American-made Tennessee flag. 

Constructed from durable, quick-drying nylon, our Tennessee flags are designed for outdoor flying and versatility. The lightweight fabric ensures the flag flies gracefully, even in gentle winds, while also offering mildew resistance. This flag features Tennessee's classic tricolor emblem, digitally printed to add UV resistance and help prevent fading from sun exposure.

Our Tennessee flags are available in various sizes, such as 12” x 18”, 2’ x 3’, 3’ x 5’, 4’ x 6’, 5’ x 8’, 6’ x 10’, 8’ x 12’, 10’ x 15’, and 12’ x 18’. Sizes 12” x 18” - 6’ x 10’ come equipped with a sturdy canvas header and brass grommets, while sizes 8’ x 12’ and up come with a rope and galvanized thimbles, making mounting on an outdoor flagpole simple and secure.

What is the Correct Way to Hang the Tennessee Flag?

Since the stars are arranged asymmetrically on the state flag, it’s easy to hang the flag upside down accidentally. To get the proper orientation, it should look as though two of the stars are above the third from the observer’s perspective. Please view our image of the Tennessee flag as a reference.

As with any other state flag, the correct way to display a Tennessee state flag with an American flag is to fly the American flag above. The American flag should also be a larger size than the Tennessee flag.

What Do the Three Stars on the Tennessee Flag Represent?

Colonel LeRoy Reeves, a Johnson City attorney serving in the Tennessee National Guard, designed the current Tennessee Tristar flag. The pointed stars in Col. Reeves’ design highlight Tennessee's three distinct regions, or “Grand Divisions,” of East, Middle, and West Tennessee. The circled blue background of the stars represents the unity of each of those divisions.

Tennessee State Flag History

Many parts of the current state of Tennessee were originally part of North Carolina. When North Carolina ratified the US Constitution in 1789, it ceded its western counties to the federal government. These counties would be admitted to the Union as the state of Tennessee, the 16th state, in 1796.

State flag designs were proposed in 1861 and 1897, featuring blue, red, and white tricolors. The current design was first adopted in 1905 after being designed by Col. Reeves. The tri-star design has since been popularized in Tennessee culture and used as a key part of logos for Tennessee-based businesses and sports teams, such as the Tennessee Titans.
