Description:

Eight stats 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 flow is 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. Marie Drake. The Territory of Alaska was purchased from Russia by the United States in 1867, for $7,200,000. The area is about 590,884 square miles, about one fifth the size of the United States. Population about 70,000. The capital is Juneau. Alaska's attractions are her amazing glaciers, snow peaked mountains, totem poles, and the thrilling "Inside Passage" a sea voyage unveiling a constant panorama of scenic wonders.
