Wyoming (WY) was the first state to give women the right to vote and hold public office, an event that is commemorated on its flag with the woman in the picture and the banner that she holds proclaiming “Equal Rights.” The two dates on the seal signify the organization of territorial government and the state’s later admission to the Union. The number 44 shows that Wyoming was the 44th state. The two men represent ranching and mining in early times. The flag was designed by A. C. Keyes, who had originally put the buffalo facing the other direction. Wyoming State Flag Adopted: 1917
