I think these are the last five of the states to have official state pledges for their state flags. If I have missed any, please let me know.
The pledge to the state flag (from Miss. Code Ann., Section 37-13-7(1972)) is:
- “I salute the flag of Mississippi and the sovereign state for which it stands with pride in her history and achievements and with confidence in her future under the guidance of Almighty God.”
“I salute the flag of the State of New Mexico and the Zia symbol of perfect friendship among united cultures.”
I salute the flag of the State of Oklahoma. Its symbols of peace unite all people.
House Concurrent Resolution No. 1034 was approved by the Oklahoma House of Representatives on April 22, by the Senate on May 18, and filed with the Secretary of State on May 19, 1982.
In 1954, the General Assembly adopted an official salute to the flag of Virginia which states:
“I salute the flag of Virginia, with reverence and patriotic devotion to the ‘Mother of States and Statesmen,’ which it represents—the ‘Old Dominion,’ where liberty and independence were born.”
