Branding The United States of America

Louisiana


Early European settlers were impressed with the pelican's generous and nurturing attitude toward their young, and the brown pelican has been a symbol of Louisiana since that time. Louisiana's official nickname is "The Pelican State" and the brown pelican appears on the state flag, seal, the official state painting, and is one of three Louisiana symbols displayed on the U.S. Mint's bicentennial quarter. Louisiana designated blue, white, and gold as the official state colors in 1972.
