The modern Nevada state flag prominently displays a cobalt blue field representing clear skies. The silver star stands for its silver-mining heritage, and the motto, “BATTLE BORN”, represents its birth during the Civil War.
⛏The official state nickname of Nevada is the “Silver State”, paying homage to its silver-mining industry which was a vital part of Nevada’s early history. Another nickname commonly used for Nevada is the “Sagebrush State” due to the state’s abundant growth of wild sage.🌿
🗻Although the state is mostly desert, it’s also home to high mountain ranges that are covered in snow for at least half the year.
☀️Nevada gets fewer than 10 inches of rain each year, making it the driest state in the United States.
🪙Nevada is the number one producer of gold in the United States, second only to South Africa in the world.
🦐Over 60,000 pounds of shrimp are eaten daily in Las Vegas, more than the rest of the country combined!
