FLAG DECRIPTION / HISTORY
Year Adopted: 1921
Iowa was at one time part of French Louisiana, and transferred to the United States with the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. The area had an unorganized territorial history; at various times being part of the Missouri Territory, the Michigan Territory and the Wisconsin Territory. It was admitted to the Union as the 29th state in December 1846.

Iowa flag emblem Iowa did not have a state flag for the first 75 years of statehood. The state flag was designed in 1917 by the state's Daughter's of the American Revolution (DAR). The General Assembly officially adopted the design in 1921. The flag consists of three equal vertical stripes of blue, white and red, being derived from the tri-color flag of France. The white center stripe holds an image of an eagle carrying in its beak, blue streamers inscribed with the state motto: "Our liberties we prize, and our rights we will maintain." The word IOWA is in red below the streamers. (ref; iowa.gov, Publications, State Symbols of Iowa)
