I found this image of an old flag of Tennessee at

This flag is shown and described by Smith (1975a) which is 'The Flag Book of the
United States' by Whitney Smith: Plate XLVIII a. on page 200. The colours are red, blue with yellow words, and white with blue number, respectively (starting from the hoist).
The three stripes represent the three main regions of the state.
The flag was approved 30 Apr 1897 by the legislature, and adopted 1 May, possibly created for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition of that year; it was little used.
