The flag of Arkansas is also a reminder of the Confederate
Battle Flag with its blue diagonals and white stars and was
created by one of the Daughters of the American Revolution,
Miss Willie Hocker. The three blues stars in the center represent
the three states that were created from the Louisiana Purchase
of 1803, Arkansas included. The blue star above first appeared
in 1924 and represents Confederacy. The twenty-five white
stars are a reminder that Arkansas was the twenty-fifth state
to be entered into the Union. The red, white, and blue colors
of the flag represent both the Confederacy and the tricolors
Arkansas is the only state to have diamonds, which is the
reason for its diamond shape in the red field. In 1967 the
diamond was officially declared the state gem.
