Here's why. Five governments have flown flags here during our history: Spain, France, Great Britain, the Confederate States of America, and our National Flag.
Other commonly known nicknames are:
"The World's Whitest Beaches," "Cradle of Naval Aviation" (Home of the Legendary Blue Angels), "The Western Gate to the Sunshine State," "America's First Settlement" (it really is),
"The Emerald Coast," "The Red Snapper Capital of the World," "The City of Champions" (many Olympic & sports stars are from Pensacola) & "The UP Side of Florida."
