These state coloring pages would be great for a classroom map or even one you and the kids can put together at home for the play room. It would make quite the fun and colorful wall display. Click on the picture you'd like, download and print!
Alabama quick facts...
The official flag of the state of Alabama features a cross of St.
Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, on a white field and is based on
the Confederate battle flag. It is the only state flag that may be
displayed as a square. It was authorized by the legislature on February
The official bird of Alabama is the yellowhammer, a variety of woodpecker that is found throughout the state at all times of the year. Unlike most woodpeckers, the yellowhammer often feeds on the ground. Alabama has been known as the "Yellowhammer State" since the Civil War, and Alabamians serving in the Confederate Army were also called yellowhammers. The yellowhammer was designated as the official state bird in 1927.
Motto: “Audemus jura nostra defendere”; translation: “We Dare Maintain Our Rights”
State Creed: The official creed of Alabama was originally created for the Alabama Federation of Women's Clubs and was written by Mrs. H. P. Thetford of Birmingham. It was officially adopted by the state legislature in 1953.
I believe in Alabama, a state dedicated to a faith in God and the enlightenment of mankind; to a democracy that safeguards the liberties of each citizen and to the conservation of her youth, her ideals, and her soil. I believe it is my duty to obey her laws, to respect her flag and to be alert to her needs and generous in my efforts to foster her advancement within the statehood of the world.
Nickname: Alabama does not have an official nickname, but is often referred to as the “Heart of Dixie.” It has also been called the “Cotton State” and the “Yellowhammer State.”
