(Frances Hannah Tranum)
Beloved state, oh state of mine,
Thy rocks and rills, and wooded hills,
Your battles fought, and vict'ries won,
Oh, Tennessee, My Tennessee,
Some of these were born here, others just lived a while in the state.
The Tennessee State Flag
The background of the flag is crimson. In the center is a dark blue circle outlined in white. The circle contains three stars that represent the mountains in the east, highlands in the middle and lowlands in the west part of the state. The blue stripe on the edge relieves the sameness of the crimson and prevents the flag from showing too much crimson when it is limp.
