    Biography Note

  • This flag was unfurled at the inauguration of William D. Moseley as first Governor of the State of Florida on June 25, 1845. The Florida House of Representatives agreed to a joint resolution on inauguration day adopting the flag as "the Colors of the State of Florida, till changed by law." The Senate, however, objected to the motto "Let Us Alone," and it was not until December 27, during the adjourned session that year, that a Senate resolution "consented to and adopted" the flag and its motto "as the Flag of the State of Florida." Because one house acted through a joint resolution and the other through a simple resolution, it would seem that this flag was never officially adopted although it received the approval of both houses of the General Assembly (Legislature).
