Hundreds of changes and additions to state symbols since the 1987 volume, four new chapters, and expanded coverage beyond the 50 states--including the District of Columbia and the five U.S. territories--make this revised edition essential for students and library reference collections. The only single documented source for historical information and color illustrations of all state and territory symbols includes new chapters on state and territory legal holidays and observances, automobile license plates, festivals and fairs, and selected U.S. postage stamps issued in honor of the states and territories. Color illustrations of official state and territory seals, flags, flowers, trees, birds, license plates, and postage stamps complement the text.

This revised edition of the only single reference source for information about state symbols updates and doubles the coverage of the original 1987 volume. New chapters on state and territory fairs and festivals and legal holidays and observances offer not only essential information, but also fascinating sidelights and unusual facts about the states and territories that are a treasure trove of information for students. The work features chapters on official state and territory names and nicknames, mottoes, seals, flags, capitols, flowers, trees, birds, songs, legal holidays and observances, license plates, miscellaneous designations, and fairs and festivals. A bibliography and subject index complete the work.
