Flag of Tennessee
Adopted April 17, 1905
Designed by Col. LeRoy Reeves[1]
Proportions 3:5 [2]

The flag of Tennessee is red with a vertical blue stripe on the fly of the flag. In between the red and blue is a thin white vertical stripe. In the center of the red area is a blue circle with a thin white outline (same thinness as the vertical white stripe). Inside the blue circle are three five-pointed stars, arranged in a triangle, each 120° angled from the other.


The three stars represent the three areas of Tennessee; the highlands, the lowlands, and the mountains. The blue stripe at the fly is placed to prevent the flag from looking too simple. [3] Red, white, and blue are the colors of the United States.
