The Louisiana flag has a blue background on which a pelican is depicted. The pelican sits in a nest and feeds its three young with its own blood. In Louisiana, the pelican stands for the protective role of the state and as a symbol of Christian self-sacrifice. Louisiana is also known as the 'Pelican State'. Below the pelican is a white banner with the state motto 'Union Justice and Confidence'. Translated into German, it means 'Unity, Justice and Confidence'. Its flag was adopted in 1912.
Louisiana got its name from explorers who explored the Mississippi River. They named the area La Louisianne in honor of Louis XIV of France in 1682.
