As depicted by the white diamond set against the red background, diamonds have been found and mined in only one site in North America. The state of Arkansas became the 25th and last state to join the Union. This idea is represented by twenty-five white stars that are situated all around the diamond. During the time of the American Civil War, Arkansas was a member of the Confederate States of America, as indicated by the tops of the four centre stars. The United States of America, Spain, and France were Arkansas’s three former colonial masters. They are represented by the other three stars on the flag. 1913: Year of creation of the flag.
