2-HS-2669 – Brad

QSL- Received268



The current flag of Oklahoma was adopted on April 2, 1925 to replace a previous flag that said to be associated with communism because of its red colour.  The current design had the name Oklahoma added in 1941 as an attempt to fight against illiteracy.  On the flag there is a traditional Osage Nation buffalo- skin shield with seven eagle feathers on a light blue field. Over the shield are two symbols representing peace.   There is a peace pipe to represent the Native Americans and the olive branch representing the European Americans.  The six brown crosses are the Native American symbols for stars and the blue field represents the first official flag flown by any Native American Nation.


Oklahoma’s nickname is The Sooner State.

Thanx - Red
