Abstract

Although the practice of adopting official state symbols is widespread, little has been written on what legislators, when tasked with choosing a state symbol, should take into consideration. An examination of select official state symbols of the Commonwealth of Kentucky will contribute to an understanding of what official state symbols are, the purpose they serve, the qualities they should reflect, and how the value of symbols adopted may be improved through the application of standard best practices.
