USA Official State Flag of New Hampshire

New Hampshire (NH)?

Adopted by the New Hampshire State Legislature in 1909, the state flag displays the State Seal of New Hampshire on a blue field surrounded by laurel leaves and nine stars representing New Hampshire as the ninth state to join the union.



The flag has only been changed once since its adoption in 1909. This change was not to the design of the flag itself, but to the State Seal centered on the flag. In 1931 the New Hampshire Legislature passed recommendations to more precisely describe the State Seal at the prompting of the New Hampshire Historical Society.?

This book is geared toward kids... and for adults like me who want to know about the history and design significance of the flags of all fifty states but can't find this information in an expensive encyclopedia.
