ISBN: 1565540476; Author: Frois, Jeanne; Publisher: Pelican Publications; Format: Hardcover; Since it was first settled by the French in the late 1600s, ten national flags have flown over Louisiana. Beginning with the flag of Columbus and ending with the city flags of Shreveport and Slidell, Jeanne Frois introduces readers of all ages to the design of each flag and shows how each involves symbols relating to its particular history and culture. Similar in format to Flags of Texas and Flags of Tennessee, Flags of Louisiana is an excellent means to teach students the series of historic events that have led up to the present day. In addition, the chapter on flag design will encourage classes to create a flag for their own city or parish. Jeanne Frois is the author of Louisianians All and coeditor of Louisiana Almanac: 1995-96, both by Pelican.
