Alaska's Flag. Eight stars of gold on a field of blue Alaska's flag. May it mean to you The blue of the Sea, the evening sky, The mountain lakes, and the flowers nearby; The gold of the early sourdough's dreams, The precious gold of the hills and streams; The brilliant stars in the northern sky, The “Bear” - the “Dipper” - and shining high, The great North Star with its steady light, Over land and sea a beacon bright. Alaska's flag – to Alaskans dear, The simple flag of a last frontier. This is genuine placer gold dust taken from Fairbanks and Interior Alaska gold fields. These Alaskan gold fields have produced $562, 114,000.00 between 1867, the date the United States bought Alaska from Russia for $7,200,000.00, until 1940
