As you can see, the first entry, "alpine", from the search output has the most STARS and is marked as OFFICIAL. So it must be the official Alpine Docker Image.

Other Alpine images provides Alpine Linux system with additonal packages installed. You can use them instead of building them yourself.

For example, "jfloff/alpine-python" is a Docker image of Alpine Linux system with Python installed.
