Nebraska

The current flag of Nebraska was adopted in 1925. The flag contains a blue field with the state seal in the center.  Nebraska was one of the last states to adopt an official flag.

Nebraska

Nebraska’s nickname is The Cornhusker State. Early explorers considered Nebraska and the surrounding areas part of the great American desert. In the 1860’s the first wave of homesteaders poured into Nebraska to claim free land granted by the federal government. Many of these first Nebraskan settlers built their homes out of sod because trees were sparse on the grassy land.

Much history of the state is the story of these rugged, strong-willed Nebraska farmers who fought hardship, drought, and insects to transform the desert into ranches and farms. Today Nebraska is a leading agricultural state, considered a bread basket for the USA and much of the world.
