The state flag of Rhode Island (and Providence Plantations) is a white field with a golden anchor in the center. This anchor represents hope and is surrounded by 13 stars of gold, which represent not only the original 13 colonies but also representing Rhode Island as the 13th state to ratify the constitution. Under the anchor, a blue ribbon reads "Hope." The anchor and the word hope are said to be inspired by the bible verse in Hebrews 6:18-19 which has the phrase "hope we have as an anchor of the soul." These symbols were used in the state as early as the 1640's when Rhode Island colonist were fleeing Massachusetts for religious beliefs.
The current flag of the state of Rhode Island was adopted in 1897. There were 2 state flags before the current, and all 3 have included the anchor. Pictures of the 2 previous flags are shown below and are NOT the flags you are purchasing with this product.
