Cumberland River, Tennessee River, and the Mississippi River. The state is trisected by the Tennessee River into three geograpic areas represented by the three stars on its flag. The Tennessee River and the Cumberland River flow north out of Tennessee into Kentucky, forming the Land Between the Lakes between Lake Barkley (Cumberland River) and Lake Kentucky (Tennessee River). Both rivers then flow into the Ohio on its way to joining the Mississippi.
