Title: State Names, Flags, Seals, Songs, Birds, Flowers and Other Symbols
Medium: book
Main author(s): George E. Shankle
Edition (publisher: place): H. W. Wilson Co.: New York (United States)
Language: English
Edition date: 1941
Remarks: Revised edition

This book was in print for a long time. There were editions in 1934 and 1938. The 4th printing of the second edition, which is what I own, came out in 1951. For the flags and seals the author states that the contents of the book simply reports the laws concerning the flag. Inspection shows that this results in uneven coverage, from the 5 lines on the flag of Kentucky to the 7 pages on the flag of Texas filled with detailed regulations on what one could do with the Texan flag. A most useful resource if you’re looking for the pre-1940 legislative history of a state flag.

This book is a conscious effort to update [sha41]. Its coverage is very similar, though greater editorial input has resulted in somewhat more even coverage, regardless of how verbose a given state legislature was on the subject of their flag.
