This is our 2018 Row – Alaska’s Flag Song, 8 Stars of Gold on a Field of Blue.
This quilt celebrates the simple beauty of the Alaska Flag and the wonderful lyrics of the Alaska's Flag Song.
The Flag was designed by Benny Benson, a 13 year old Alaska Native who won a territorial contest in 1927 to design a flag for the Territory.
The Alaska's Flag Song was written by Marie Drake, set to music by Elinor Dusenbury and was adopted as the official state song in 1955.
We hope you find this song as fitting for Alaska as we do and enjoy this little quilt that commemorates 8 Stars of Gold on a Field of Blue.
