The symbols of the Juneteenth flag include:
- a white star, representing Texas, the Lone Star State, where the country's last remaining slaves were notified of their freedom in 1865
- a bursting outline around the star, inspired by a nova, and symbolizing a new beginning for the African Americans of Galveston and throughout the land.
- a curve that extends across the width of the flag representing a new horizon for Black Americans.
- the red, white and blue design is a reminder that slaves and their descendants were and are Americans.
- June 19, 1865, represents the day that enslaved black people in Galveston, Texas, became Americans under the law.
