In an act "to provide for a State Flag for the Commonwealth of Kentucky and to prescribe the design thereof," approved on March 26, 1918, the General Assembly stipulated that the official flag shall be "of navy blue silk or bunting, with the seal of the Commonwealth of Kentucky encircled by a wreath of golden-rod, embroidered, printed or stamped on the center thereof. The dimensions of the flag may vary."
C. Frank Dunn of the Kentucky Progress Commission presents Kentucky's official flag to a guard of honor from Greece, 1930. Kentucky's flag, a bust of Henry Clay, and other official emblems, flags, and letters from around the nation were being conveyed to the president of the Greek Republic for the country's centenary and then for permanent deposit in the American Legion building at Athens.
