STATE SONG

Alaska's FlagWritten by Marie DrakeComposed by Elinor Dusenbury

Eight stars of gold on a field of blue -Alaska's flag. May it mean to you The blue of the sea, the evening sky, The mountain lakes, and the flow'rs nearby;The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,The precious gold of the hills and streams; The brilliant stars in the northern sky, The "Bear" - the "Dipper" - and, shining high,The great North Star with its steady light, Over land and sea a beacon bright. Alaska's flag - to Alaskans dear, The simple flag of a last frontier.
