Flag of Nevada

Nevada State Flag

Flag of Nevada

Nevada became the 36th state to enter the union in 1864, and the phrase "Battle Born" on the state flag reflects Nevada's entry on the Union side during the American Civil War.

The Nevada state flag has a cobalt blue background; in the upper left quarter is a five-pointed silver star between two sprays of sagebrush crossed to form a half wreath (sagebrush is also Nevada's state flower). Across the top of the wreath is a golden scroll with the words "Battle Born" in black letters. The name "Nevada" is below the star and above the sprays in golden letters. The original design was approved in 1929, and was modified in 1991.
