"The City of Five Flags"

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), "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 Western Gate to the Sunshine State," & "The UP Side of Florida."
