Nevada State Flag

The Nevada state flag is a very simple design created by Louis Shellback in 1926 who won a $25 prize for the winning flag design. The canton design has two sagebrush stems crossing at the bottom forming a semi-circle around a silver star. "Nevada" appears below the star, and a yellow scroll bearing "Battle Born" is above it. "Battle Born" refers to the fact that Nevada was the only state to achieve statehood during the Civil War.
