Hawthorne Hotel's Flags of the Week ~ May 7 through 13, 2012

Here are the flags for this coming week.  We have no special requests right now.

Here is some more information about three of this week's featured flags:


The State Flag of Idaho was adopted in 1907. The dimensions were described specifically by the legislature:  5' 6" wide, 4' 4" deep, bordered by a gilt fringe that is 2.5 inches wide. The flag is to be blue silk with the state seal of Idaho 21" diameter displayed in the center. Under the great seal, the words "State of Idaho" are to be embroidered in gold block letters two inches high on a red band that is 3" wide X 29" length, positioned about 8.5"above and parallel with lower fringe.

The state seal image is a general representation, not as detailed as Idaho's official great seal. Idaho has the only state seal designed by a woman. Emma Edwards Green designed the original great seal, adopted in 1891 by the first legislature of Idaho. Her painting is held in trust by the Idaho Historical Society - it is rich with Idaho symbols.  The current state seal is an updated version commissioned in 1957.


The flag of Serbia is a tricolour consisting of three equal horizontal bands, red on the top, bluein the middle and white on the bottom. The same tricolour, in some variations, was the flag of Serbia throughout its history, and is the ethnic flag of the Serbian people. The current form of the flag was officially adopted on November 11, 2010.


On a navy blue field is a sunflower, the state flower. Also, the state seal and the words "Kansas". In the picture of the state seal are thirty-four stars representing the order of statehood. Above the stars is the motto "To the Stars Through Difficulties". On the seal a sunrise overshadows a farmer plowing a field near his log cabin, a steamboat sailing the Kansas River, a wagon train heading west and Native Americans hunting bison.
