Printable Flag of Alabama Outline Coloring Page
On January 11, 1861, the Alabama Secession Convention passed a resolution designating an official flag. Designed by several women from Montgomery, final touches were made by Francis Corra of that city. One side of the flag displayed the Goddess of Liberty holding an unsheathed sword in her right hand; in her left she held a small blue flag with one gold star. Above the gold star appears the text “Alabama” in all capital letters. In an arch above this figure were the words “Independent Now and Forever”. The reverse side of the flag had a cotton plant with a coiled rattlesnake. The text “Noli Me Tangere”, (“Touch Me Not” in Latin), was placed below the cotton plant. This flag was flown until February 10, 1861, when it was removed to the Governor’s Office after it was damaged by severe weather. It was never flown again.
