Adopted in 1900, the flag recalls the Southern Cross used by the Confederacy during the Civil War.
That red cross is placed on a white shield, with the state seal centered. The flag represents the land of sunshine, flowers, palm trees, rivers and lakes.
The seal features a brilliant sun, a cabbage palmetto tree, a steamboat sailing and a Native American Seminole woman scattering flowers.
