The history of the official Kentucky state flag dates back to 1918 when the Generally Assembly authorized the idea of a Kentucky state flag. The design was then not officially authorized until 1928. It was stated that the Kentucky flag was to have a navy blue background and it needed to be silk or bunting. The seal of the Commonwealth of Kentucky is centered on the flag and is then encircled with a wreath of goldenrod. This is allowed to be embroidered, printed, or stamped. In 1920 at Camp Zachary Taylor, the first official flag was presented. The flag was not to the standards expected and was sent to Credo Harris for improvements. Three designs were created and sent to the Governor and were eventually lost in hustle and bustle of the political system. In 1961 Kentucky Legislature finally authorized the specifications including design and colors for the State’s flag. An artist named Harold Collins created three designs for the flag. His chosen design was similar to the original design but was more specified and offered more options for the material the flag was to be made. The only other major design change was the wreath of goldenrod now only encircles the bottom half of the seal and the words "Commonwealth of Kentucky" encircles the top half.
