    Iowa flag history
    During World War I, Iowa National Guardsmen stationed along the Mexican border suggested that a state flag was needed to designate their unit. This prompted Mrs. Dixie Cornell Gebhardt of Knoxville, Iowa, a member of the state's Daughters of the American Revolution, to design a flag in 1917. The Iowa General Assembly officially adopted the design in 1921. The vertical tricolor of blue, white, and red, reflects Iowa's heritage as part of the French Louisiana Territory (France flag is a vertical tricolor of blue, white, and red)
