The flag of Rhode Island was officially adopted in 1897.  The flag contains a white filed with a golden anchor in the center and a blue ribbon with the word “hope” which is the state motto.  Encircling the anchor there are thirteen stars symbolizing the thirteen colonies and also Rhode Island as the thirteenth state to ratify the constitution.  The anchor and the word below it are believed to have been inspired by the Hebrews biblical phrase “hope we have as an anchor of the soul”
