The flag of the state of Nebraska is a blue cloth charged with the state seal. The current design was adopted in 1925, yet a design in 1921 from an architect based in New York State was rejected by the state government. The official designation of the design as the state flag occurred in 1963; Nebraska was one of the last states to adopt an official flag.[1]

The Nebraska flag was rated in a survey by the Nebraska Legislature's Government, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee discussed a bill that would have created a commission that would suggest new flag designs to the Legislature.[3] The flag was not changed.
