The first flag of the State of Florida was flown for the first and, so far as is known, for the last time on June 25, 1845. The raising of the state and national banners, closing the ceremonies marking the inauguration of William D. Moseley as first governor of the State of Florida, on the east portico of the recently completed capitol, was accompanied by a twenty-eight-gun salute. The band then played "Yankee Doodle."
