Facts About Alabama

from Stars Fell on Alabama

(Mitchell Parish, Frank Perkins 1934)

Moonlight and magnolias, starlight in your hair
All the world a dream come true
Did it really happen, was I really there
Was I really there with you

We lived our little drama, we kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama that night
I can't forget the glamor, your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night

I never planned in my imagination, a situation so heavenly
A fairy land that no one else could enter
And in the center, just you and me, dear
My heart beat like a hammer, my arms wound around you tight
And stars fell on Alabama last night

The Alabama State Flag
The Alabama flag, reminiscent of the Confederate battle flag, was adopted in 1895. The background of the flag is white. A crimson St. Andrew's cross formed of bars no less than six inches wide extend diagonally all the way across the flag. The flag is made both in a square and in a rectangle. The St. Andrews cross is a Christian symbol that represents truth, honor, courage, and defiance against tyranny.
