Commemorative issue State flags - American Bicentennial
Shown is the state flag of Louisiana, part of a pane of stamps showing the flags of each of the 50 states.
The Louisiana flag contains two elements: a crest centered on a blue field. The crest consists of a nest bearing three chicks, a mother pelican vulning herself with her head turned to the viewer’s right and displaying three drops of blood on her breast. Beneath the nest a white banner bears the state motto “Union Justice Confidence.”
