Wisconsin State Flag
The legislature first provided an official design for Wisconsin's state flag in 1863, when Civil War regiments (groups of soldiers)
in the field were requesting flags.
In 1913 the flag was designed with a dark blue background with the state coat of arms centered on each side. The flag did not change until 1979, when the word "Wisconsin" and the statehood date "1848" was added in white letters.
