History of the “The City of Five Flags”
Originally inhabited by the Muskogean people, it was settled by the Spanish nearly five centuries ago. In fact, June 2014 will mark the 455th anniversary of Pensacola. Pensacola is nicknamed “The City of Five Flags” because five flags have flown over it throughout its history including the flags of Spain, France, Great Britain, the Confederate States of America and the United States.
The location of Pensacola has made it vulnerable to hurricanes throughout its history. Recently, in 2004, the city and nearby areas were devastated by Hurricane Ivan and incurred over $6 billion in damages. Hurricanes also effected the establishment of Pensacola in the early years. In 1559, Spanish explorer Tristan de Luna sailed into Pensacola Bay with 1500 settlers. Three weeks after Luna arrived in Pensacola, a powerful hurricane blew in and killed hundreds, destroyed 8 of his 11 vessels and ruined supplies. Local historian John Appleyard says “that storm changed history” by preventing the Spanish from establishing a foothold in western Florida. By 1561, there was only a Spanish military outpost in Pensacola because northwest Florida was considered too dangerous to settle.
It was not until 1698 that the Spanish began to lay the foundation for the town of Pensacola. In 1719, Pensacola was surrendered by the Spanish to the French and over the next century Pensacola would be governed by competing European countries. The Adams Onis Treaty of 1819 was signed by the Spanish and the United States. Florida was sold to the United States for US$ 5 million. In 1821, Pensacola became part of the United States.

Pensacola is often referred to as the “Cradle of National Aviation” and is home to the Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron and the Blue Angels.
