Oklahoma State Flag OK The 46th state, admitted 1907
The Oklahoma state name comes from a Native American word meaning "red people" and in Oklahoma (OK) today there are more than 60 different groups of Native Americans. So it is fitting that Native American symbolism is featured on the Oklahoma flag. The blue field is taken from a flag carried by Choctaw soldiers during the Civil War. The shield in the center, of buffalo hide decorated with eagle feathers, is the battle shield of an Osage warrior. The crosses on it are the Native American signs for stars. A peace pipe and olive branch lie across the shield, representing peace of both Native and non-Native Americans to show that all people want peace. The Oklahoma flag was designed by Mrs. Louise Fluke.
