After a lengthy design competition, Nevada's flag was officially adopted on March 26, 1929. It was revised on June 8, 1991, and the state's name was added.
It has a deep blue background and features a yellow, flowing ribbon that reads "BATTLE BORN." That phrase makes reference to Nevada becoming a state during America's Civil War.
A silver star, and the word NEVADA, in a circular pattern, are featured under the ribbon. The silver star represents the states's rich silver and gold mineral wealth.
This is surrounded by green sagebrush with yellow flowers. Note that sagebrush is Nevada's official state flower.
