From the Book Jacket: Did you know that Alaska's state flag was designed by a 13-year-old boy, or that California's first flag was made from a lady's petticoat? Each state flag tells a story through its design, and some of the stories are very interesting. In this book, Rita Haban introduces you to the 50 state flags. She tells the stories of their origins and explains the historical meaning of each emblem. Clear, colorful, detailed illustrations, supplied by the Flag Research Center in Winchester, Massachusetts, show the flags of each state. This is a first book for Rita Haban. Her interest in history stems from her own childhood, when a seventh grade teacher sparked her students' interest by illustrating history lessons on the blackboard. Haban studied English at Ohio State University. A member of the Society for Children's Book Writers, Haban also writes short stories and poetry. Two of her poems were published in the Ohio poetry awards, The Best of 1983. She and her family live in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
