    Biography Note

  • The Constitutional Convention of 1868 was the first to make constitutional provision for a State flag. The Constitution adopted by that convention provided that the Legislature should, as soon as convenient, "adopt a State Emblem having the design of the Great Seal of the State impressed upon a white ground of six feet six inches fly and six feet deep." The Constitution further directed the Legislature, at its first session, to adopt the seal. This was done on August 6, 1868, and completed the design prescribed for the flag.
