THE FUN PLACE TO VISIT




NEVADA STATE FLAG

On a cobalt blue background in the upper left quarter is a five-pointed silver star between two sprays of sagebrush crossed to form a half wreath; across the top of the wreath is a golden scroll with the words, in black letters, "Battle Born." The name "Nevada" is beneath the star in gold letters. The current Nevada State Flag design was adopted March 26, 1929, and revised in 1991.


STATE SONG



(playing on these pages)




Home Means Nevada


Written & Music by Bertha Raffetto


Way out in the land of the setting sun,

Where the wind blows wild and free,

There's a lovely spot, just the only one

That means home sweet home to me.

If you follow the old Kit Carson trail,

Until desert meets the hills,

Oh you certainly will agree with me,

It's the place of a thousand thrills.

Home means Nevada

Home means the hills,

Home means the sage and the pine.

Out by the Truckee, silvery rills,

Out where the sun always shines,

Here is the land which I love the best,

Fairer than all I can see.

Deep in the heart of the golden west

Home means Nevada to me.

Whenever the sun at the close of day,

Colors all the western sky,

Oh my heart returns to the desert grey

And the mountains tow'ring high.

Where the moon beams play in shadowed glen,

With the spotted fawn and doe,

All the live long night until morning light,

Is the loveliest place I know.

Home means Nevada

Home means the hills,

Home means the sage and the pine.

Out by the Truckee, silvery rills,

Out where the sun always shines,

Here is the land which I love the best,

Fairer than all I can see.

Deep in the heart of the golden west

Home means Nevada to me.
