Alabama has seen many flags over the years to get the Alabama state flag that is recognized today. Alabama originally entered the Union in 1819 only to secede in 1861 after its Secession Convention. At this time Alabama decided to adopt a flag for the "Republic of Alabama." A group of women in Montgomery created this "Secession Convention Flag" and it became the first flag of Alabama. This flag was double sided and offered the goddess of liberty with the words "Independent Now and Forever" on one side and a cotton plant with a coiled rattlesnake with a Latin message that translated to "Touch Me Not" on the other. This flag was only flown for about a month due to damage it received during a severe storm. Alabama replaced this by flying one of the two flags of the Confederate States of America. From March 1861 to April 1865 these flags were flown in similar places to that of an official state flag for Alabama. When the war ended these confederate flags were replaced by the flag of the United States of America. In 1891 Alabama came to the decision to attempt to try again to design a flag of their own. In February of 1895 the Alabama Legislature approved the "crimson cross of St. Andrew on a field of white" as the official flag of Alabama. The flag can be depicted as a square or a rectangle and the crimsons bars are not to be less than six inches broad and must run diagonally across the flag.
