  Tenessee Flags
by OlenaKyiv

Located on each end of the River Walk are clusters of Tennessee flags. Each cluster contains one large 12 x 18-foot flag, and eight smaller 5 x 8-foot flags for a total of 18 Tennessee flags. The 16 small flags represent Tennessee being the 16th state admitted to the union June 1, 1796. The two large flags represent the states bicentennial celebration.

The American flag is not flown in the mall since the park is an extension of the State Capitol, which flies the American Flag high above the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park.
