    Wisconsin flag history
    The flag was first designed in 1863 at the request of Civil War regiments who wanted an official flag to fly during the war on the battlefield. The flag was later revised several times to add more distinctive features. The last change was made in 1981 to add the word "WISCONSIN" in white capital letters above the Coat of Arms and the year of statehood, 1848, centered below it.
