The Tennessee state flag, adopted in 1905, features three stars on a blue disk representing the grand divisions of the state: East, Middle and West. The stars are bound together in indissoluble unity by an unending white band on a red background. A white and blue stripe at the fly end finishes the design.
Tennessee 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.
