March 3, 1845 – Florida became the 27th state of the United States of America .
The word ‘ Florida ’ comes from the Spanish ‘feast of flowers’. But we call it the Sunshine State . The capital of the Sunshine State is … No, not Walt Disney World … Tallahassee .
The state flower is the fragrant orange blossom and the mockingbird is the state bird. Do you think the mockingbird can mimic Donald Duck? Or maybe it sings the Florida state song, ” Suwannee River “. The Florida state motto is: “In God we trust.”
