The committee to design a State Flag was appointed by
legislative action February 7, 1894, and provided that the flag
reported by the committee should become the official flag. The committee
recommended for the flag "one with width two-thirds of its length;
with the union square, in width two-thirds of the width of the flag;
the ground of the union to be red and a broad blue saltier thereon,
bordered with white and emblazoned with thirteen (13) mullets or
five-pointed stars, corresponding with the number of the original
States of the Union; the field to be divided into three bars of
equal width, the upper one blue, the center one white, and the lower
one extending the whole length of the flag.
