North Dakota (ND) State Flag The 39th state, admitted 1889
The North Dakota flag was carried by the men of the First North Dakota Volunteers during the Spanish-American War in 1895 and then again when the regiment was in the Philippines in 1899. The figure of the bald eagle is similar to the eagle on the seal of the United States, but this one carries seven arrows instead of 13 and an olive branch with three red berries instead of 13 green olives. Also, the national eagle is holding a scroll in a closed beak, while the state eagle's beak is open. But the olive branch still stands for peace and the arrows, power. The 13 stripes on the eagle's shield stand for the first 13 states. And the fan-shaped design above the eagle symbolize the rising of a new nation.
