The Field of the Flag is the stripes, and the Union is the blue and the stars. The colors of the Flag are red. representing valor; w hite representing purity, truth and home; blue representing loyalty, sincer ity and justice: and its stars repre senting the federal union The arrangement of the stars on the flag is regulated by law and executive order. The executive order isseud Oc tober 26. 1012, provided for 48 stars nr ranged in six horizontal rows of eight >tars each. Starting in the upper left hand corner and reading each row from left to right, gives the star of each state in the order of the State’s .-aifi cation of the Constitution and admis sion to the Union. The star represent ing Arkansas is the first star of the fourth row, the 25th state to ratify the Constitution and become part of the United States.
