The flag of Alaska has a blue background with eight golden stars on it. The blue represents the sea, the sky, the mountain lakes and the wildflowers of Alaska. The seven stars represent the constellation 'Big Dipper'. The eighth star represents the North Star. The gold of the stars symbolizes the wealth hidden in the mountains and rivers of Alaska.
The United States acquired Alaska from the Russian Empire in 1867. Alaska became the 49th state of the USA on January 3, 1959. The name is derived from the word 'Alyeska', which means great land. The word 'Alaska' was used by the earlier Russian and British explorers.
