The flag of the state of Nebraska is a blue cloth charged with the state seal. The current design was adopted in 1925. A previous design submitted in 1921 by a New York architect 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.
The Nebraska flag was rated in a survey by the North American Vexillological Association as 71st out of 72 U.S. and Canadian flags, making it the second-worst flag in the survey. The worst-ranked flag, the flag of Georgia, has since been changed. In 2002, 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. The flag was not changed.
