John "Benny" Benson, was an Aleut (the indigenous people of the Aleutian
Islands) who at the age of 13 designed the flag for the Territory of Alaska
in 1927. His design, chosen from about 700 entries from schoolchildren in
grades 7 to 12, featured the Big Dipper constellation (Ursa Major) and the
North Star (Polaris) on a blue background. When Alaska became a state in
1959 the flag became the state flag.
