If you’re just joining us, you can catch up here in our Across the USA in 31 Days series. Every day this month I will bring you a small sample of printables from my larger eBook, which will be released later this month. I hope you will join me this month as we travel from state to state across the USA.

New York is a beautiful state both in its countryside and in the city. Today you can learn more about this states unique and very symbolic flag with these FREE coloring pages. ::

I’ve never been to the northeast, except to Washington D.C. Being a music major and former dancer, I have always wanted to visit New York, specifically New York City. I’m not much for the “night life,” but I would love to visit the city, Times Square, see a few shows on Broadway and see some of the beautiful countryside along the way. And of course, we’d have to make our way to Niagara Falls while we’re there. *sigh* Maybe one day.

Meanwhile, you can download the New York State Flag Coloring Pages. New York joined the Union as the 11th state on July 26, 1788. The state coat of arms is centered on the flag, which has a dark blue background. On the left, the goddess Liberty, which stands for freedom, holds a pole with a Liberty Cap on top. At her feet is a crown, representing freedom from England at the end of the Revolutionary war. On the right, the goddess of Justice wears a blindfold and carries the scales of justice, which symbolizes equal treatment for everyone under the law. Underneath, a white ribbon reads “Excelsior,” the state motto, which expresses the idea of reaching upward to higher goals. On a shield between Liberty and Justice, the sun rises over the Hudson highlands and ships sail the Hudson river. Above the shield is an eagle resting on a globe, which represents the Western Hemisphere. The coloring pages are available in print for the pre-writers, dotted manuscript for early writers and dotted cursive for upper elementary.
