Florida created a new state seal after it seceded from the
Union in 1861, and made final modifications to the seal in
1970. Florida Governor Francis P. Fleming, who thought that
the predominately white flag looked too much like the traditional
flag of surrender, added the red cross of St. Andrew to the
white flag with the state seal in the middle. According to
Florida law, the most current state seal must always grace
the state flag, and must be one-half the hoist and occupy
the center of a white ground.
