These are the obsolete symbols and words on their flag

The Flag of the State of Louisiana consists of a heraldic charge called a “pelican in her piety,” representing a mother pelican wounding her breast to feed her young from the blood. This symbol, emblematic of Christian charity, is also found on the state seal. On the flag it is depicted above a ribbon with the state motto: “Union, Justice, and Confidence.”

That blood is now on those master propagandists that didn’t give a damn. #Obamabirds.
