Carried with Courage
Historic Flags from the Capitol Collection

The California State Capitol is home to a remarkable collection of nearly 50 flags dating from the Civil War, Spanish American War and World War I.  Originally kept in the Adjutant General’s Office in the State Capitol, the flag collection was later displayed in the State Capitol rotunda. Since 1928, the flag collection has undergone extensive conservation efforts to preserve these fragile pieces of our State’s history. This exhibit features a number of conserved Civil War flags from the Capitol Historic Flag Collection. Some of these flags were flown on display on the parade ground, while others have accompanied Californians into battle. Many of the flags to be exhibited have never before been seen by the public. This exhibit is a unique opportunity and will offer the public a once in a lifetime chance to view this remarkable collection.
