TENNESSEE STATE FLAG HISTORY & DESIGN
The state of Tennessee was originally part of North Carolina, but it didn’t take long for it to be divided. In 1796, Tennessee became the 16th state admitted to the Union, but the current flag design wasn’t finalized until 1905.
The current Tri-star flag was designed by Colonel LeRoy Reeves, a Johnson City attorney who was serving in the Tennessee National Guard at the time. The pointed stars in Col. Reeves’ design highlight the three distinct regions, or “Grand Divisions”, of Tennessee: East, Middle, and West Tennessee. The circled blue background of the stars represents the unity of each of those divisions.
The tri-star design has been popularized in Tennessee culture, used as a key part of logos for Tennessee-based businesses and sports teams, like the Tennessee Titans.
As with any state flag, the correct way to hang a Tennessee state flag with an American flag is to fly the American flag above and make sure the American flag is larger than the state flag.
