One of the current exhibits at the Alaska State Museum in Juneau feature some of the original entries submitted over 70 years ago for design of the Territory of Alaska’s flag. Drawn by 13 year old Alaska Native Benny Benson, the distinctive design of Eight Stars of Gold on a Field of Blue is now the official state flag. It’s also the subject of the official state song and a bill now moving through the Legislature. You can see the exhibit at the Alaska State Museum through the end of March before it travels to other locations around the state.Related Link: Alaska State Museum
