NV State flag

Nevada Day is a state holiday in Nevada and celebrated on the last Friday of October each year. This year, October 26, commemorates 36 years since Nevada's entry into the Union as the 148th state on October 31, 1864.

The flag of the state of Nevada consists of a cobalt blue field with a silver star in the upper left hand corner, footed by the state name "NEVADA". Above this is a golden-yellow scroll with the words "Battle Born" indicating that Nevada became a state during the American Civil War. Below the star are two sprays of green sagebrush with yellow flowers.
