The flag of Carolina is a triband consisting of three equal horizontal red, white, and white bands; with a bluecanton containing a ring of seven five-pointed white stars. The first variation was adopted in 1791, shortly after the establishment of the Carolinian Confederacy. The three stripes represented the founding states (Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina), and with three stars within the canton. Over the decades, four additional stars were added upon the admission of Tennessee (1796), West Florida (1814), East Florida (1845), and Oklahoma (1864).
