When Florida first became a state, it adopted a flag with the then-current United States flag in the corner, and five different-colored stripes. In one of the stripes was the motto, "Let Us Alone." It was unveiled at the inaugaration of the first Governor, William D. Moseley. Ultimately, it was approved through resolutions by the House and Senate in the following year. It was replaced by another one in 1861. The present flag of Florida was adopted in 1900. It was ultimately approved by both the House and Senate.
