    Alabama flag history
    In January, 1861, Alabama seceded from the Union joined the Confederate States of America as a state and adopted a new flag. The obverse side of the flag displayed the "Goddess of Liberty" holding an unsheathed sword in her right hand; in her left she held a small blue flag with one gold star. Above the gold star appears the text "ALABAMA". In an arch above this figure were the words "Independent Now and Forever". The reverse side of the flag had a cotton plant with a coiled rattlesnake. The text "Noli Me Tangere" (Latin for "Touch Me Not") was placed below the cotton plant. The flag ceased to exist as Confederate States of America surrendered to the Union and Alabama joined the union again as a state
