Ohio State Flag



Ohio Flag History

The Ohio state flag is unique among the state flags of the Union. The Ohio State Flag was designed by John Eisemann. Described as a pennant, the Ohio burgee is properly a swallowtail design. It was adopted in 1902. The Ohio State Flag, unique in shape but uncomplicated in design, is filled with symbolism. The union of the Ohio state flag, a large blue triangle is populated with seventeen white stars. Those that are grouped around the circle represent the thirteen original colonies. The four stars found at the apex of the triangle combine with the stars of the thirteen original colonies to total seventeen. Ohio was the seventeenth state to enter the union. Three red and two white horizontal stripes and the blue field copy the red, white and blue of the Stars and Stripes. The Ohio state flag features a blue field representing Ohio's hills and valleys. The stripes represent the roads and waterways of Ohio State. The white circle with a red center forms the "O" in Ohio and can also be related to Ohio State’s nickname, the "Buckeye State."
