The Arkansas state flag has a red field upon which is a large blue-bordered white diamond. The colors were chosen to show that Arkansas was part of the United States. The three blue stars below the word "Arkansas" denote that Arkansas belonged to three countries (France, Spain, and the United States) before attaining statehood; 1803 was the year of the Louisiana Purchase when the land that is now Arkansas was acquired by the United States; and Arkansas was the third state created from the purchase by the United States, after Louisiana and Missouri. The lone star above the word is to commemorate Arkansas's membership in the Confederacy. The 25 stars in the blue border denote that Arkansas was the 25th state to be admitted to the Union.

Features of Arkansas flags for outdoor use
Arkansas flags for outdoor use are constructed of a durable nylon fabric especially developed for flag use. Nylon's tight weave provides maximum beauty and flyability as well as brilliant, fast colors. Its weave helps shed pollution, dirt and grime that the looser weave alternatives absorb. Nylon is water repellent and mildew resistant.
