Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Alabamians are very proud to be Americans, according to a recent study.

Alabama ranked 9th on Movato Real Estate's list of the most patriotic states in America.

The study used criteria like the number of national historic landmarks per capita, veterans per capita, money spent on veterans, percent of residents that vote and number of people who search for American flags to buy online.

South Carolina was the winner, and California ranked last.

Alabama earned high marks for supporting the troops, ranking 17th in that category, and the amount of people who searched for the American flag.

Alabama placed in the top 30 in all the categories.
