Why is the bald eagle on the Pennsylvania flag?
Atop the coat of arms is a bald eagle, representing Pennsylvania's loyalty to the United States. Originally authorized by the state in 1798, the current design was enacted by law on June 13, 1907. In the summer of 2005, House Bill 179 was introduced to the state legislature to add "Pennsylvania" to the bottom of the flag in golden letters.
