funny thing is I am from Georgia and been in Flordia for 28 years and have never seen the state flag for either. i just went and found both of the flags and they were all new to me. now i do know the rebel flag, there are many of those here and in certain counties in GA there is flag on evry porch. the confederate flag i mean. i wanted to put one on my truck but was afraid to.

I have lived in Texas and I didn't know all of those things. The Colorado flag is flown a lot around here and it shows up a lot on T shirts, etc., especially in tourist areas.

learned a few new things - like the state tree and state gem.

And the state bird is the mockingbird .... or mosquito, depending on the rain situation :-)

Love me the Lone Star Flag (right by or under Old Glory, of course)

Interesting points. I didn't know about the Monarch Butterfly, prickly pear cactus or sweet onion.
The information on Caddo Lake surprises me. Are you saying that other lakes are man made?

Great facts and I wish I had a pecan tree (or two) on our farmette.
