Cultural SymbolsArmed with a fiddle, Dutch oven and Bowie knife, these square dancers are ready to cut up the dance floor.

Arkansasawyers adopted three of the most boring state symbols—milk, the square dance, and English. Another symbol that deserves a pass is its official flag pledge.

Arkansas is one of three states that designated the Dutch oven a state symbol. It shares its official musical instrument, the fiddle, with three other states.

Arkansas also has an official creed.

There has been at least one attempt to adopt the Bowie knife as a state symbol. Most Arkansawyers are probably glad that effort failed.
