别名「机会大地」(Land of Opportunity)的阿肯色于1836年添加联邦,成为美国第25州。早期的法籍探险家将这块土地命名为阿肯色,可能是一个发音的拼法,法文字为「下游」居民之意,可能是用来指称夸保族(Quapaw)印地安人及他们定居在河流旁之故。阿肯色是唯一出产钻石的州,虽然现在那个矿场只是一个观光景点。它的州花是苹果花。


Nicknamed the "Land of Opportunity," Arkansas, which joined the Union in 1836, was the 25th state. The early French explorers of the state gave it its name, which is probably a phonetic spelling for the French word for "downriver" people, a reference to the Quapaw Indians and the river along which they settled. Arkansas is the only state in which diamonds have been mined, although today the mine operates only as a tourist attraction. The state flower is the apple blossom.
